Two-Day Workshop on Mixed Method Research – Using SPSS and NVivo Planning, Analyzing and Writing Date: 10 -11, May, 2013 - online and 17 -18, May, 2013 - onsite
About Workshop The long debate for pros and cons of qualitative and quantitative research has turned into mixed method research. This emerging approach is largely backed by growing area of inter-disciplinary research. Scholars have identified various innovative strategies and techniques to operationalize mixed method research to answer marriage of both qualitative and quantitative research challenges. This workshop trains participants on fundamental strategies of mixed method research related to planning and execution. Participants will also learn how to combine potentials of SPSS and NVivo software for quantitative and qualitative analysis.
