Evaluation research investigates the effects (positive and negative) of social policies or interventions and the reasons for those successes and failures, in order to learn transferable lessons. Mixed method designs (using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods) are increasingly used and documented in evaluation research, to produce a comprehensive understanding of a complex intervention situation. In this session, we will distinguish the main rationales for combining methods, and their associated designs.
In the practical part of the workshop, we will critically examine a variety of research designs from the published literature, discussing how to improve those designs, build upon them, and the methodological challenges introduced by each. Students using mixed methods designs are invited to present a brief account of their research design, for feedback and discussion.
