Contents: The workshop aims to introduce students to the dynamic development of social science approaches to the inter-relation and integration of qualitative and quantitative research. Tracing the movement from the classic formulations of triangulation for convergent validation to the contemporary approach of triangulation for analytic density, the workshop will feature a range of research examples and extended exemplars of triangulation in practice. It will also feature the role of information technologies in supporting and facilitating mixed methods research.
