Date: Tuesday, October 20, 2020
Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm

This webinar is part of the Fall Qualitative Research & Innovation Webinar Series presented by NVivo and SAGE Publications.

Are you interested in mixed methods research but unsure of whether it is a good fit for your more qualitative-focused study ideas? Mixed methods research requires specific knowledge and skills within the rapidly evolving field.

This webinar will introduce four essential things to know and do as you embark on a mixed methods research study and is organized around four key questions:
(1) Why is integration of qualitative with quantitative research needed for your study?
(2) What will your qualitative-focused mixed methods research design look like?
(3) Who will your qualitative-focused mixed methods research study involve?
(4) How will you represent the required evidence of integration?

Presenter: Cheryl Poth University of Alberta

Working on a business idea? The Business Model Canvas is an alternative to a long, wordy business plan used by startups around the world. It's a great way to summarize all the key elements of your product or service in a single page. It’s also a great tool to make sense of exactly what information you will need for your business planning – and how to find it at the library.

In this session, you will:            

  • Understand which free and proprietary library databases are the best fit for your canvas
  • Develop search strategies that will save you time and eliminate frustration, and
  • Get market, industry, or competitor information you can use for your startup or small business venture
