*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



1-3)



*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
