Mixing Methods: why, when and how?

This Advanced Quantitative Methods and Advanced Qualitative Methods training is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded students within the seven WRDTP partner institutions. Students are welcome from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways.

Research in the social sciences is increasingly using mixed methods to explore the social world. This session will cover the following aspects of conducting a mixed-method research: research design, data collection and analysis, data integration and merging, data presentation, and writing up a mixed-method research report.

The training session itself will take place between 10 – 1. The session will then end with a panel discussion between 1 – 2 including the DTP’s AQM and AQualM directors, Andy Bell and Ana Manzano.

This training aims to:

  • Introduce students to the underlying principles of mixed methods research;
  • Provide students with an intermediate understanding of mixed methods design and logic;
  • Provide students with a broad understanding of how to choose mixed research methods;
  • Explore the issues and practices of collection and integration of data using this approach.

This training session will be delivered online via Blackboard Collaborate – a link to the training course will be provided to delegates.
