Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course will:
- present the history and the current debate on the use of mixed methods in social research,
- provide an overview of the different types of mixed-method designs and data analysis,
- provide the tools to evaluate studies using mixed methods,
- engage students in developing a mixed-method research design,
- engage students in undertaking mixed-method data analysis.

The course will be held on its entirety online.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

To attend the course, preliminary knowledge of quantitative and qualitative research methods is required. Students are expected to actively participate in class exercises.
The final assignment will include the following components:
Research questions to be addressed through mixed methods;
Review of literature using mixed-method research,
Development of a mixed-method research design,
Collection and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data.

Important Grading Information:
If not explicitly noted otherwise, all requirements mentioned in the grading scheme must be met.
If a required task is not fulfilled, this will be considered as a discontinuation of the course. In that case, the course will be graded as ‘fail’ (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfill the task on the student's side (e.g. a longer illness).
In such a case, the student may be de-registered from the course without grading.
Whether this exception applies is decided by the lecturer.
If any requirement of the course has been fulfilled by fraudulent means, be it for example by cheating at an exam, plagiarizing parts of a written assignment or by faking signatures on an attendance sheet, the student's participation in the course will be discontinued, the entire course will be graded as ‘not assessed’ and will be entered into the electronic exam record as ‘fraudulently obtained’.
The plagiarism-detection service (Turnitin in Moodle) can be used in course of the grading: Details will be announced by the lecturer.
