Project #87546 - Reflection and Action—Reflecting on Mixed-Methods Research

You may be familiar with the many design ideas for fuel-efficient cars and their gas-saving engines. Some proposals include cars that run on alternatives to traditional gasoline, such as biofuels, hydrogen, or even cars that are all electric and plug into an electrical supply for a charge. However, a recent innovative design is the hybrid engine, which uses some gasoline and also uses batteries that are charged from the energy produced by the car's brakes. Like a hybrid car, a mixed-methods research design combines different means to address the research objective or question.

In this Discussion, you will take a more in-depth look at mixed methods that you may consider using in this week’s Assignment.

·         Consider the following questions:

o    What is the role of mixed-methods designs?

o    Why would it be important for a researcher to be conversant in both quantitative and qualitative methods?

o    How can quantitative and qualitative research methods complement one another?

o    Would it ever be viable to consider only quantitative or only qualitative methods for a research study?

o    How can mixed-methods versus single (qual-quan) methods extend our understanding of a research problem?

o    How do your thoughts on these questions relate to your worldview?

By Day 3, post a 200- to 400-word response to the questions above. Be sure to include at least two questions that will elicit comments and suggestions from your colleagues.

 

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the reading(s) and/or media segment(s) and use APA format.
