Reflective Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Mixed Methods Research in Global Health

Training offer for early career researchers

Application deadline: 30 May 2024
Dates: 17 - 18 October (Heidelberg) & 28 - 29 November (Munich) 2024. Attendance of both dates is mandatory.
Location: Universität Heidelberg and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany

This training introduces early career researchers to the theory and practice of Mixed Methods Research in Global Health. Adopting a competency-oriented approach, our specific objectives will enable participants to:

  • critically appraise the role and the specific contribution of different epistemological traditions as well as different methodological approaches to Global Health Research to situate the emergence of Mixed Methods Research and recognise need for it
  • identify which research questions and which situations require and benefit from the application of mixed methods research
  • recognize and distinguish the most common mixed methods research designs and approaches
  • recognize the complexity of engaging in mixed methods research and appreciate the emergent nature of mixed-methods designs
  • reflect on opportunities and challenges related to writing up mixed methods studies.

The training is purposely delivered over two separate sets of days, so that during the interim period of six weeks, participants can work independently and reflect on their own work. Participation in both sets of dates is mandatory. 

GLOHRA early career researchers (doctoral students, post-docs, and young researchers engaged outside the academic setting) with at least some direct experience in Mixed Methods Research in the health sector are warmly invited to apply for on-site participation by sending their filled application by email to Mr. Alfonso Hurtado (alfonso.valenzuela.hurtado(at) by 30 May 2024.
