Critical Realism, Constructionism and Mixed Methods
  • Room 210, Rolle Building, Plymouth University

Save event

There has been much debate about the underpinning assumptions of researchers mixing quantitative and qualitative approaches (for example, Pring, 2000). 

Two contenders dominate: critical realism and constructionism. But there is considerable overlap between these positions and for many the differences are not clear. 

In this seminar we will look at some of the issues and tensions underpinning mixed methods research and evaluate the positions taken by each of these theoretical stances.

Speakers: Nick Pratt and Peter Kelly, Plymouth University
