Mixed-Methods research consists of an approach for collecting and integrating qualitative and quantitative data to investigate a problem of practical and/or theoretical interest.  This workshop addresses the process of designing and implementing a mixed methods study.  Topics include philosophical stances, distinctions between qualitative and quantitative data, as well as the appropriateness of specific designs for addressing questions of interest within mixed-methods research.  Participants will have time to discuss current research projects and the implications of this approach in their discipline. Common challenges when conducting mixed-methods research are also addressed.

  • Designing a mixed method study, and
