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.
