    Presenter: Elizabeth Creamer

    Date/Time: October 10 at 3:00pm EST

    Title: Illustrating the Purposes for Using Mixed Methods Research Approaches 


    Geared toward introducing mixed methods research to a general audience, this Webinar uses quirky examples from the popular media to illustrate major rationales that are put forward for using a mixed methods approach. These include the triangulation, complementarity, development, initiation, and evaluation designs. Strategies utilized for mixing qualitative and quantitative data and analytical procedures will be explored for the examples. The presentation should help generate ideas for a mixed method research project as well as to clarify if an idea fits within the standard purposes offered for conducting mixed method research.

It is expected that the selected papers will provide educational technology researchers with a better understanding of how to design and conduct MMR studies, as well as how the use of MMR will deepen understanding in their topics of inquiry. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: (a) methodological and/or theoretical manuscripts addressing topics such as: the prevalence of MMR studies in educational technology in higher education, the contribution MMR makes, the philosophical issues related to MMR, or discussions about procedural aspects of MMR within the field (e.g. types of designs, sampling strategies, approaches to data analysis, or quality issues); and (b) empirical manuscripts that use MMR in educational technology in higher education.

    Deadline for Full Manuscripts: 1 October, 2017

    Information for Authors:

    Submitted manuscripts will be evaluated on the basis that: (a) they fit the definition of MMR stated above, (b) they show methodological quality and originality, and (c) they contribute to improve our understanding and practice of MMR.

    Elizabeth Creamer will offer on November 8, 2017 (4:30-6:00) a Skill Building Workshop: Using Mixed Methods to Develop a Grounded Theory from Evaluation Data at the American Evaluation Association Annual Meeting, Washington, DC.

  • 20 Sep 2017 2:15 PM | Anonymous

    Presenters: Tony Onwuegbuzie

    Date: Two days • Wednesday, September 20 & 272 pm - 3 p.m. EST

    Sponsor: Textbook & Academic Authors Association

    Anthony J. Onwuegbuzie is professor in the Department of Educational Leadership at Sam Houston State University, where he teaches doctoral-level courses in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed research. He is also a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Johannesburg. With a current h-index of 81, he has secured the publication of more than 400 works, including more than 300 journal articles, 50 book chapters, and 5 books. He has also delivered more than 950 presentations and 200 methodological workshops worldwide and more than 50 keynote addresses across six continents. He has received numerous outstanding paper awards. As former editor of Educational Researcher (ER), he was part of the team that secured a first impact factor of 3.774. Currently, he is editor-in-chief of the mixed methods journal, International Journal of Multiple Research Approaches, and a co-editor of Research in the Schools. His mixed research article published in ER has been the most read for the past 10 years, and currently is one of the most cited ER articles ever.  Also, one of his mixed research articles published in the Journal of Mixed Methods Research (JMMR) is the most cited JMMR article ever. He is immediate past president of the Mixed Methods Research International Association.


    In virtually every institution of higher education in the United States and beyond, faculty publishing is used not only as an index of productivity that is employed by administrators to make decisions on faculty about tenure, promotion, and merit pay increases, but it is also used as an index of departmental, collegial, and institutional prestige. Unfortunately, a large percentage of faculty have never had an article published or have had very few articles published. Thus, it is clear that many faculty members need guidance as to how to increase their levels of productivity.

    With these points in mind, the overall goal of this two-part webinar is to provide a meta-framework for publishing that contains steps that are continuous, iterative, interactive, holistic, dynamic, and synergistic. Specifically, in the first webinar, Onwuegbuzie will summarize 30 steps to publishing. In the second webinar, he will outline strategies for helping authors secure impactful publications—which represent publications that advance the field. Both these webinar sessions are applicable for all emergent scholars—including doctoral students—who would like to learn how to secure quality publications. Also, these sessions are useful for beginning faculty members and experienced faculty members alike.
