Playing in both sandboxes. Mixed methods part 1.


What if your question calls for the use of more than one method? This week, we will cover an emergent form of research—mixed methods designs. Using our previous knowledge of quantitative and qualitative designs, we will push further to understand how these two types of data could be combined to build deeper interpretations or triangulate findings to capture a broader understanding of the problem.
