Mixed Methods Research and Intervention Designs

8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Intervention trials have often been considered the "gold standard" for clinical trials. While mixed methods intervention designs are certainly useful in medical research, their utility extends across disciplines, including education, psychology, and the health and social sciences. Join the Michigan Mixed Methods Program for this premier workshop. 


Word cloud. The largest featured words are: research, evidence, practice, programs, group, program, intervention.

With growing interest in the applications of mixed methods research, a particularly important and challenging design involves its use in interventional studies, such as trials and experiments. The purpose of this workshop is to provide training on the procedures for designing a mixed methods intervention study based on your research aims or questions. The workshop will cover design decisions and elements of rigorous mixed methods intervention studies. You will work on your own mixed methods project with guidance and feedback from faculty.

Who Should Attend: 

The workshop targets researchers, faculty, staff, and students motivated to design or working on a mixed methods research project using intervention design.

What to Expect:
  • Work on your mixed methods proposal, research study, or manuscript
  • Improve your project with rigorous methodology using an interactive format
  • Refine your project through group consultation with leading methodologists and group feedback

Prerequisite: None is required, but participants will gain most from the workshop if they have already begun, completed or are planning a mixed methods intervention study
