Designing Participatory Mixed Methods Research: Community Engaged Approaches to Address Complex Problems

8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

North Campus Research Complex
University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, Mich.

Interactive Workshop presented by the Michigan Mixed Research and Scholarship Program


Mixed Methods Workshop Fall participants

Bring your ideas for participatory research to the M3RSP Spring 2017 Workshop! 

Participatory approaches to research (community-based participatory research, action research, transformative-emancipatory framework, etc.) are designed to equitably involve community members, stakeholders, and academic researchers in all phases of the research process, including knowledge generation and decision-making. Participatory approaches enable all partners to contribute their expertise and have been shown to have benefits for participants, their communities, and the quality of the research.


Mixed Methods

In combination with mixed methods research designs, participatory approaches can be used to understand complex social and health problems and develop the interventions that improve health outcomes. 

Join the Michigan Mixed Methods Research and Scholarship Program for our spring workshop, featuring keynote speaker Barbara Israel and Community Partner from Detroit Urban Research Center. Through an interactive approach, attendees will apply their learning to design a participatory, mixed methods study.
