*Add a new layer to your research design!* You may know us as the ICPSR

Summer Program, or just the Summer Program, or some combination of

math/stats/nerd camp, but here's some trivia for your

Tuesday: our full name is the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods

of Social Research. Yet even that doesn't include everything we do! We also

teach methods involving a more qualitative approach, and today we are

featuring a handful of short workshops that fit that mold.

Introduction to Mixed Methods Research

<https://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/sumprog/courses/0276> (May 20-22)

*Instructor: Shiri Noy, Denison University*

Mixed methods research typically refers to research design and

implementation that combines qualitative and quantitative data collection

and/or analysis techniques. In the course we will interrogate the utility of

mixed methods research in light of the limitations of any specific

methodological tool and approach, and review the theory and practice of

mixed methods research in the social sciences. We will focus on practical

tools and challenges confronted across the stages of mixed methods research.

Process Tracing in Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research

<https://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/sumprog/courses/0215> (May 27-29)

*Instructor: Derek Beach, Aarhus Universitet*

Process tracing is a research method designed to learn how things work in

real-world cases. Increasingly used across the social sciences and in

applied policy evaluation, process tracing involves unpacking a causal

process in a case and tracing how it worked empirically, enabling strong

within-case inferences about causal processes.

The aim of this intensive three-day course is to provide participants with a

good working understanding of the core elements of process tracing as a

distinct social science case study method, enabling you to utilize it in

your own research either as a stand-alone method or in combination with

other methods in multi-method designs such as experiments or small/medium-n

comparisons using

Mixed Methods Research: Combining Quantitative and Qualitative Data and

Strategies <https://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/sumprog/courses/0274> (June


*Instructor: Shiri Noy, Denison University*

This course examines best practices, through the review of exemplars and

discussion of theoretical approaches, in ?mixing? methods and integrating

qualitative and quantitative research. The course introduces students to the

theory and practice of mixed methods research in the social sciences.

In the course we will examine and evaluate specific applications of mixed

methods research. Further, course participants are encouraged to bring

ideas, drafts, and questions about their own mixed methods project including

dissertations, prospectuses, funding proposals, or other plans for

implementing this type of research.

Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)

<https://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/sumprog/courses/0250> (June 1-3)

*Instructor: Ingo Rohlfing, University of Cologne*

Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) is a method that has become part of

the toolbox in disciplines such as political science, sociology, public

administration and organization and management studies. QCA can be used to

answer any research question if one is interested in analyzing patterns of

necessity and sufficiency in a group of cases, ranging from a handful to

many thousands. This course introduces participants to the principles and

techniques of Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) on a methodological and

an applied dimension. At the end of the course, participants will be

familiar with the key elements of a QCA study and know how to read,

criticize, and implement an empirical analysis
