Mixed methods research allows scientists to draw inferences using both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Mixed methods approaches can bring many advantages when answering complex questions and generating comprehensive data, and can provide deeper insights and understanding that may be missed when using only one method. However, conducting mixed methods research also has its challenges. These challenges can be minimised via thorough planning and the inclusion of appropriately skilled researchers.

In this Masterclass we will work together to:

  1. Define mixed methods research and identify examples of research questions that fit within a mixed methods approach.
  2. Describe the advantages and challenges of using mixed methods approaches.
  3. Compare and contrast mixed methods research designs using real world examples.
  4. Evaluate various analysis tools and approaches in mixed methods studies.
  5. Create a research question and mixed methods study design for a future study, and consider measurement tools that may be appropriate to answer the research question.
