Are you aware that the mixing of quantitative and qualitative research analysis methods offers power and flexibility that sometimes is not possible through simply focusing on one or the other? It is a research methodology that is adaptable to diverse settings, including those that involve teaching and learning in digital environments. Join Elizabeth G. Creamer, professor emerita in educational research from Virginia Tech, and hear her talk: Two Can be Better than One: Adapting Mixed Method Research Approaches to Digital Environments
This discussion will provide an overview of Mixed Method Research (MMR), why/when you would want to use MMR as opposed to solely qualitative or quantitative and will share useful digital tools, including qualitative software. Using examples from research about learning in online environments, this webinar will elaborate on the distinctions between integrated and non-integrated approaches, and will review the implications of the two approaches to our understanding of philosophical views about the nature of knowledge, analytical procedures, research expertise, how collaboration is approached, expectations for reporting, and quality considered.
Date and Time: Tuesday, April 5, noon–1:30 p.m.
