Mixed methods or Mixed up methods?

Posted By: jim field on May 24, 2019
I fully agree with the author, especially with the biggest sin in MM in my opinion: na´ve borrowing. Often in MM, methodology is treated like a room full of furniture "things": add a Victorian chair here (semi structured interview) and a Shaker bookshelf (Likert scale survey) there, and then, worse make a claim that you're "triangulating" methods. Our graduate students are particularly susceptible to this "additive" version, many lacking the epistemological, ontological and philosophical grounding to make wise choices (let alone justify them).
