Whereby they will be shortly revisited in the light of a new epistemological and methodological framework, which will serve firstly to understand that measuring, counting, scaling and classifying are four different ways of assembling data; secondly as a basis for re-joining qualitative and quantitative approaches on a new methodological ground a real third paradigm. There are at least three ways for integrating qualitative and quantitative approaches, which I will call: a mainstream, b innovative and c merged.
These three ways will be illustrated with some research examples, with particular attention to merged methods in the following two lectures. Such techniques overpass technically and practically the qualitative and quantitative divide. An important step in the mixed methods design is sampling. The lecture explores the different concepts of sampling, offering an innovative and alternative vision that reconciles quantitative requests and qualitative needs.
As for sampling, also the generalization of the research findings is an important step. However, on this issue, there are different and divergent positions, which will be described and discussed. The lecture will end up with an innovative and alternative proposal. Lecture Glocalizing methodology: decolonizing epistemology and research methods. Europe and US have been the cradle of methodology.
Mixed Methods and Multimodal Research and Internet Technologies
Consequently, most of the contemporary methodological knowledge has been invented by Western academic culture. Throughout the Twentieth century, this indigenous culture have been transformed in a type of general and universal knowledge, and social science methodology has become one of the most globalized knowledge. However, the limits of globalization are evident in many fields, from economy to politics, from marketing to culture and social. Methodology is not free from these limits.
There is an emerging need of finding postcolonial methodologies and making culturally flexible contemporary research methods. The last lecture explores the proposal for a glocal methodology, the possibility of thinking methodologically global and acting methodologically local, and its ambiguity. Finally, Indigenous Methodologies and Participatory Action Research are questioned whether they are an effective way out of methodological colonialism.
The literature on mixed methods is huge and growing. Among the many good books, four significant collections are:. The lecturer Dr.
