"The advances in mixed methods analysis and integration workshop provided a rigorous learning environment enabling me to apply practical skills for my current and future research. I now feel more confident in my abilities to analyze and integrate data in order to provide a more comprehensive understanding of problems facing the healthcare world.
I look forward to taking future workshops with the team at U-M Mixed Methods Program, and I would recommend this course for anyone looking to increase their understanding of mixed methods."

"The University of Michigan’s Mixed Methods workshop was fantastic and I am very grateful I was able to attend. All mentors were incredibly helpful and explained concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. In addition, engaging in activities and discussing ideas with groups and mentors was helpful in expanding my understanding on the application of mixed methods research across various disciplines. I have now submitted my dissertation proposal to my doctoral committee and hope to propose soon!"

"Attending this workshop helped me to refine my project title, revisit quantitative, qualitative and mixed-method research questions, consider analysis and integration strategies of quantitative and qualitative data. I believe that the knowledge that I gained at the workshop will make my current research more rigorous. Furthermore, I became aware of practicalities for writing a successful mixed methods paper. I enjoyed the group consultations, where we had a chance to explore our topics from different perspectives through listening, sharing, receiving and giving feedback. Finally, during those three-day intensive work, I expanded my circle of friends."

"The workshop on Designing a Mixed Methods Research Project was rigorous and of great value in not only learning about mixed methods but how the approach could be applied to the research for my dissertation. The faculty became like another set of advisors for me through my journey with whom I keep in touch to this day. I enjoyed the first workshop so much that I returned for a second on writing a mixed methods paper for publication and plan to attend more in the future"
