    The Summer School aims at providing students with a theoretical outline on Community Research Methods, as well as practical tools to conduct community research.


    Purposes:

    - Providing critical knowledge and skills of community research and action;

    - Providing training in designing, implementing and evaluating research projects, and in applying specific participatory research methods.


    At the end of the Summer School students will reinforce autonomy in planning and leading a field community research and action.


    Place and dates

    July 13 – 17, 2015.

    Mixing it up: Understanding and using mixed methods research in social sciences
    Date: 2 May – 27 June 2017


    Overview: 

    An online course for researchers which critically discusses mixed methods approaches to social science analysis. While including a strong conceptual and theoretical component, the course aims to be very practical. It analyses the key advantages and challenges of mixed methods research by critically discussing a series of examples of mixed methods research "in action" at different social science departments at the University of Oxford. Throughout the course, participants will be encouraged to share, explain and discuss the methodological challenges of their own research. The final online workshop will provide an opportunity to present and discuss emerging research proposals with the course tutor and other participants. The course is primarily (but not exclusively) targeted at researchers who are developing their research plans.


    Programme details: 

    The course will run over eight weeks. Participants can expect to engage with and contribute to the course for around 15 hours per week. Additional time to prepare for wider reading and assignment preparation is also required. The list of units is as follows:


    Week 1: Online induction
    Week 2: Varieties of mixed methods research: a critical introduction
    Week 3: The first question: Why (not) mixed methods?
    Week 4: A simple plan: how to design a mixed methods research project?
    Week 5: Mixing it up? Analysis, interpretation and write-up
    Week 6: Dissemination and 'impact': who cares about mixed methods research?
    Week 7: Study week
    Week 8: Synchronous online tutorial to present student’s research proposals


    Fees:

    Early-bird rate (applications must be received by 2nd April): £750.00
    Standard course fee: £945.00
    Student rate (for students outside University of Oxford): £450.

     

    Tutors: 

    Dr Ariel Lindorff (tutor) and Dr Martin Ruhs (director)
