Qualitative research in Mixed-methods Studies

This session introduces and explores how mixed method research and the thinking that underpins it can be put into practice and used to contribute new knowledge to an area of interest. In the session we will focus on: What is mixed methods research and how can qualitative research be part of it in a way that retains the integrity of qualitative inquiry? What will I need to think about when designing and conducting that research? Why putting an emphasis on mixing, how and why, and not just methods, matters? What are common problems in mixed methods research and how can they be navigated?  

The session draws on the chapter “Designing Research Using Mixed Methods in Cheek, J and Øby, E (2023) Research Design. Why thinking about design matters. Sage, Thousand Oaks. It will be very helpful for participants to have access to that chapter and also to have read it as the point of departure for the webinar.
