Over the last decade, mixed methods approaches have become more and more popular all around the world. These approaches have been adopted in different disciplines like sociology, anthropology, education, general medicine, etc. However, confusing terms are often used. For instance: What is the difference between mixed methods, triangulation, data integration, and data combination? The workshop will try to clarify this subject and focusses on the characteristics of the different methodologies. It starts with an orienting overview and then discusses how mixed methods approaches can be realized using MAXQDA.

 

MAXQDA is a software program that was a pioneer in the field of supporting mixed methods approaches. It offers many features like variables for documents and codes, visualisation of the relationships between codes, and in general procedures that allow you to quantify qualitative data and qualify quantitative data.


The seminar is divided into three sessions.

First, a methodological overview is given, which focusses on the different ways for using MAXQDA to support triangulation strategies . How should you organize data triangulation and investigator triangulation? How can you use MAXQDA to manage a mixed methods study with different kinds of data (interviews, questionnaires, observations) that apply to the same respondents?

In the second part of the seminar, colleagues from the CAQDAS Networking Project talk about their experiences in analysing open-ended questions with MAXQDA as part of their research into computational support for the integration of qualitative and quantitative data. This presentation derives out of work done during the NCRM funded Qualitative Innovations in CAQDAS (QUIC) research programme (2008-2011). 

The last part of the seminar focusses on the new field of “joint displays,” that is any kind of data display and visualisation that brings together qualitative and quantitative data. Here, Udo Kuckartz will present some results of the work he did with American mixed methods scholar John Creswell. This part of the seminar also includes a presentation of newly integrated methods in the new MAXQDA Version 11.

This is a CAQDAS Networking Project event.
