Taking a pluralistic approach to the complex nature of a social world, this course is intended to introduce students to different mixed methods research approaches, consider the epistemological and paradigmatic implications of mixed-methods designs, and help students critique, design, and conduct mixed methods research within educational and other social scientific research. Rather than focusing on ways to mix methods, this course will extend to the entire inquiry process.
