WEBINAR – Part 1: Mixed Methods Research
April 4, 2016
This webinar provides an overview of mixed methods research, and will be followed by a webinar on mixed studies reviews. These two approaches are used to combine the strengths of quantitative and qualitative methods and to compensate for their respective limitations. This webinar is structured in two main parts. First, the worldviews associated with mixed methods are presented. Afterward, we will present the main types of mixed methods research designs and techniques as well as guidance for planning, conducting, and appraising mixed methods research.
