This course will combine quantitative and qualitative methods into an integrated research approach. Much of the innovative research in Health Informatics requires that students be involved in the design and measurement of studies where reliable and valid measures do not exist for all concepts and constructs. Both methodological approaches can be combined to give insights that would not be possible from either method alone. The course will explore the methodological assumptions, the applications and the software that can support triangulation methods.
