Integrated Mixed Methods: Bridging Qualitative and Quantitative Methods and Results

September 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on September 28, 2022 at 10:00 am

One event on September 30, 2022 at 10:00 am

Integrated mixed methods are used to answer questions that necessitate more than one method to achieve a holistic understanding. Combining qualitative and quantitative approaches can enhance conversations about theory, practice, and/or policy. This demanding paradigm requires knowledge, skill, and expertise in quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as the art of intentionally integrating the approaches to and findings from each mode of inquiry. This class will take course over 3 mornings (9/26, 9/28 and 9/30). Learn more and register.

I Spot a Cool Plot: A Nearly Syntax-Free Introduction to Advanced Data Visualization in R for Survey Researchers and Social Scientists

October 12 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This workshop will introduce the advanced data visualization capabilities in R and to the concepts of the grammar of graphics. We will demonstrate how to access ggplot2 using a graphical user interface library in R as well as an R shiny app. These environments provide the user a “point and click” interface for accessing the power of ggplot2 and can generate R syntax automatically thereby providing users a boost up the learning curve for understanding the grammar of graphics used…

Modular Design and Automated Testing in R

November 14 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

This course will introduce some of the best practices of professional software development. Participants will learn to structure their R code into reusable functions and store those functions as separate scripts and/or packages and will learn to write automated tests for their functions, to help confirm that results are as expected and to ensure that future changes to code do not cause unexpected changes to results.
