The main course goal is to introduce PhD students to mixed methods research and show examples of how to carry out MMR in your doctoral thesis. Throughout the course, the PhD students will develop their understanding of how to design MMR, collect quantitative and qualitative data, analyze these multiple data sources, and report it as a coherent whole in their own doctoral thesis. The course aims to develop the PhD students’ abilities to understand the ontological, axiological, epistemological, and methodological implications of MMR in their own doctoral thesis.
