This November, the Michigan Mixed Methods program held its fourth workshop open to researchers from around the world. The three-day event brought together some of the most prolific, influential, and passionate researchers employing mixed methodologies in the the health and social sciences.
Attendees of the workshop brought their unfinished grant applications, research plans, and dissertations, to gain intensive one-on-one support from the Michigan Mixed Methods program's growing network of methodological experts and mixed methods researchers.
The workshop featured a keynote lecture by Dr. Marsha Wittink, M.D., University of Rochester, in addition to didactic presentations from faculty, small group consultations, guided work sessions with intensive one-on-one feedback from faculty members, and a final poster session.
The Michigan Mixed Methods Program's next open mini-course will be held at the University of Michigan in late March 2017. The event will center on community-based participatory research (CBPR) and mixed methods, and will feature keynote speaker and national authority on CBPR, Dr. Barbara Israel, of the University of Michigan School of Public Health. Registration is now open for the March 2017 mini-course.
In July 2017, the program will offer a specialized course for graduate students on "Writing a Mixed Methods Dissertation Proposal."
