Mixed methods research includes research studies or programs that involve the integration of qualitative and quantitative concepts, methods, and data. The combination of qualitative and quantitative methods and data in the natural and social sciences has occurred for centuries. Mixed methods researchers contend that combining elements from quantitative and qualitative traditions provide enriched, multi-perspective understandings of research phenomena. This workshop will cover an overview of MMR, combing research questions, designs, schemas, data collection, and analysis strategies for mixed methods studies. Participants are encouraged to bring an initial research problem or question to develop during the workshop.
