    Description:

     

    The 5-day Summer Institute in Mixed Methods in Health Research is co-organized by the Faculty of Dentistry and the Department of Family Medicine. It will enable participants to develop research problems that can be tackled using mixed methods, a powerful methodology to address the growing complexity of research questions relating to human health and wellbeing. Coached by a team of mixed methods researchers, participants will have several opportunities to develop practical skills in the conduct of mixed methods.

     

    Montreal has been named the world’s #1 university student city (QS Best Student Cities ranking 2017), with particularly strong ratings for arts and culture, friendliness, diversity and affordability. And it’s home to Canada’s top University: McGill. Come experience this exceptional setting while you learn about mixed methods research this summer!

    Course Description


    Aims

    This five day intensive course aims to introduce participants to mixed (qualitative and quantitative) research methodologies. It aims to provide participants with the knowledge, understanding and research skills necessary to put mixed methods into practice, both for evidence review and empirical studies.

     

    The Participants

    This course is designed for those who have some experience or knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative research methods in health research. It is suitable for PhD students, research active/interested health and social care professionals as well as more experienced researchers wishing to expand their skill set.

    The course is as an accredited course leading to a University of Warwick Postgraduate Award (PGA Qualification), 20 CATs.

     

    Course Leaders

    Dr Rebecca Johnson is a Mixed Methods Research Fellow at Warwick Medical School, having joined the university in 2008. Currently Rebecca works within CLAHRC -West Midlands. In this role, she focuses on mapping knowledge mobilization, synthesizing qualitative and quantitative evidence to improve health outcomes for patients and the public, and consulting on research projects involving the integration of qualitative and quantitative data.  Rebecca has a specialist interest in different forms of data integration,

     

    Dr Felicity Boardman is an Assistant Professor at Warwick Medical School, having joined the Division of Health Sciences in 2010. Felicity’s research interests centre on mixed methodologies, reproductive and genetic technologies, stigma and disability. She has worked both independently and in the context of an international mixed methods research team and has authored numerous papers using mixed and qualitative research methods, including those using large longitudinal datasets. Felicity is currently in receipt of a prestigious Wellcome Trust Investigator Award, researching the social and ethical implications of genetic screening in the UK.     

     

    Professor Frances Griffiths is head of the Division of Health Sciences at Warwick Medical School. She has expertise in social science research methods and has developed the use of mixed methods research methods for health. This includes work with complexity scientists from disciplines including mathematics, statistics and economics. Her research focuses on the impact of medical technology and information and communication technology on lay experience of health and health care, and on the experience of living with long-term conditions.

     

    Workshop Structure and Content

    The course is structured around three overarching themes:  1) Introduction and core principles of mixed methods research 2) data analysis, transformation and integration and 3) synthesis and pragmatic approaches to mixed methods research. Within the three themes, key areas such as developing a mixed methods research question, using and developing your mixed methods design, approaches to sampling, data collection and analysis and mixed methods publishing and reviewing will be covered.


    Teaching and Learning Methods

    The course will include lecture content, practical activities and small group work, with lots of opportunities to seek the advice of the facilitator. The award is assessed by the completion of a 3-4,000 word assignment, to be submitted by 11th May 2018.

    Methods for community research, action and change


    The Italian Community Psychology Association (SIPCO) in collaboration with the European Community Psychology Association (ECPA) organizes the first edition of the International Summer School in Community Research, focusing on the theme “Methods for community research, action and change”.


    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. 

    The Summer School will take place in Florence, via di San Salvi 12. 

    Lessons will be held at the Department of Education and Psychology from 9 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 6 pm (on Friday 17 the class will end at 4 pm).

    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)
