International Webinar on Convergent Parallel Mixed Methods Design

October 15-16, 2021
via ZOOM Teleconferencing

Perfect for researchers who to have a strong quantitative research background as well as qualitative research expertise, the convergent parallel mixed methods design collects the quantitative and qualitative data concurrently, analyzes the two components separately, and interprets the results simultaneously. With a growing attention to emergent research methodologies such as the mixed methods design, how can one employ the strength of both qualitative and quantitative research designs, specifically the convergent parallel kind?
