View in Goolge Maps (WC2A 2AE)
Mixed method designs (using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods) are increasingly used and documented in applied fields, in situations where researchers seek to assess and understand the effects of policies or interventions. In this session, we will distinguish the main rationales for combining methods, and their associated designs.
We will explore strengths, weaknesses, challenges and effective methodological practices for a variety of mixed method research designs. Important principles of complementarity, confirmation, sequencing and nesting will be laid out and examined. Examples from the fields of housing policy, public health and drug policy will be used, as well as examples from students’ own work.
In the practical part of the workshop, we will critically examine a variety of research designs from the published literature, discussing how to improve those designs, build upon them, and the methodological challenges introduced by each. Students using mixed methods designs are invited to present a brief account of their research design, for feedback and discussion.
