Designing mixed method evaluation research

Designing mixed method evaluation research

£30.00

Description

Evaluation research investigates the effects (positive and negative) of social policies or interventions and the reasons for those successes and failures, in order to learn transferable lessons. Mixed method designs (using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods) are increasingly used and documented in evaluation research, to produce a comprehensive understanding of a complex intervention situation. In this session, we will distinguish the main rationales for combining methods, and their associated designs.

Avoiding Fallacies of Deduction, Induction and Abduction

Avoiding Fallacies of Deduction, Induction and Abduction

£30.00

Description

The Western philosophical tradition distinguishes three basic forms of reasoning: deduction, induction and abduction. All three formats can be violated by fallacies, or deficient forms of arguments. The sessions will explore these three formats and identify their most common fallacies.
Qualitative researchers are equally bound by the logic of these formats of reasoning, when presenting evidence and results of their observations. In this context induction and abduction are particularly significant and will be explored in some detail.
