    Dear MMIRA community,


    As graduate students who work with mixed-methods research designs, we have found that there has been little discussion about whether or how issues of reproducibility apply in mixed-methods research. We are circulating a survey to our professional peers to collate opinions on these issues and best practices for reproducibility in mixed-methods research.  


    You can access the survey here: https://weinberg.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1XDp511VI1ma2S9


    The survey will be active until April 27th, 2018. It may take anywhere from 5-30 minutes of your time, depending on how much you choose to contribute. We also welcome you to contact us directly to discuss this project or issues of reproducibility more generally. 


    Many thanks,

     

    Hollen Reischer and Raffles Cowan

    Mixed Methods Research SIG Business Meeting: Panel About Special Journal Issues Focused on Mixed Methods


    Mon, April 16, 6:15 to 7:45pm, Westin New York at Times Square, Ninth Floor, Palace Room


    The business meeting will feature a panel discussion about special journal issues focused on mixed methods research. The invited panelists will include editors who have recently conceptualized and led the development of a special issue on mixed methods research. Editors will introduce their chosen journal, describe their motivation for initiating the special issue, and discuss their process for requesting proposals and finalizing the included articles. The panel will conclude with a discussion about the role of special issues for advancing mixed methods research within disciplinary communities and advice for those interested in proposing a special issue or submitting their mixed methods work for consideration in a special issue. We welcome all those interested in learning more about mixed methods research!

    Division D Preconference Workshop 3: Writing the Methods Chapter of the Dissertation Proposal

    Fri, April 13, 10:05am to 12:00pm, Westin New York at Times Square, Ninth Floor, Pearl Room

    Abstract

    The methods chapter of a dissertation proposal is in many ways the scientific heart of the dissertation; however writing a methods chapter can be a challenging task. You are expected not only to describe the study design, sampling, data collection, and analysis, but also to provide a thoughtful justification for your choice of research strategy and methods to best address the research problem of interest. This workshop is designed to address this challenge and to provide guidance on how to write an effective methods chapter. Presenters with extensive experience in advising on dissertations studies in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research will provide helpful tips for how to structure the chapter content in a cohesive and logical manner and how to explain and support the choice of the methods. Participants will be able to develop a detailed outline of the methods chapter for the dissertation study.

    This interactive, problem-centered day-long workshop introduces ideas for creative ways to mix qualitative and quantitative approaches in a mixed methods research project. This course is appropriate for graduate students and early career researchers with little or no prior knowledge of mixed methods research practice. The principal purpose of the course is to use a problem-oriented activity to generate creative ideas about ways to integrate qualitative and quantitative data during analysis. Objectives for the course include to (a) review the distinctions between multi-method, mixed method, and fully integrated mixed method research; (b) distinguish major reasons for using a mixed method approach; and (c) describe strategies for mixing at all phases of the research process, including at the design and sampling stage, and analysis. Participants completing the course should come away with a head full of ideas about creative ways to integrate qualitative and quantitative data.  A pre-course assignment is to read “A Primer About Mixed Methods Approaches for Research in an Educational Context,” available at https://mixedmethodresearch.wordpress.com/additional-resources-by-e-g-creamer/Further information about the courses, eligibility requirements, and registration instructions are available at 2018 AERA Annual Meeting Professional Development Courses.
