Researchware Cofounder explores ways to Enhance Credibility in Randomized Control Trials

Researchware cofounder, Dr. Sharlene Hesse-Biber, explores was to "Weaving a Multimethodology and Mixed Methods Praxis Into Randomized Control Trials to Enhance Credibility" in a new article for the December 2012 issue of Qualitative Inquiry (Qualitative Inquiry (vol. 18, no. 10, pp876-889). As Sharlene explains in the abstract, "Most disciplines within the health and social sciences regard randomized control trials (RCTs) as the "gold standard" of evidence-based practice (EBP). The move toward mixed methods within evidence-based research has proven daunting to many researchers, and few best practices for RCT mixed methods studies currently exist. This article provides some strategies for incorporating mixed methods into RCT designs. Furthermore, the author argues for the value of also infusing a multimethodological approach into RCT mixed methods projects to further offer research strategies for enhancing the credibility of RCT research findings through, for example, incorporating participants' lived experiences and methodological reflexivity into the research process. The bulk of this article presents four case studies that analyze how researchers in diverse fields have taken a multimethodological praxis into account in their RCT mixed methods projects, including the integration of a mixed methods multimethodological component into RCT research designs. The author also addresses the missed opportunities in these studies to maximize the validity of RCT projects by using mixed methods and multimethodological designs."

Researchware Keynotes The Qualitative Report's 4th Annual Conference

Researchware cofounder, Dr. Sharlene Janice Nagy Hesse-Biber is to be the keynote speaker at The Qualitative Report's Fourth Annual Conference, January 18 - 19, 2013. The conference, sponsored by the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences of Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida USA, explores the theme of "Qualitative Research and Technology". As the inspiration behind Researchware's Simply Powerful Tools for Qualitative Research and editor of the Handbook of Emergent Technologies in Social Research (Oxford University Press, 2011), among many other publications, Dr. Hesse-Biber is a leader in the role of technology in qualitative research.

Sharlene's address is on "The Medium is the Message." Channeling Mashall McLuhan's Insights to Examine the Role of Emergent Technologies in Social Research.

Marshall McLuhan's path-breaking book, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, published in 1964, notes the character of the medium through which a message is delivered is most important with regard to how it is understood by others. This insight led him to emphatically note, "The medium is the message,'' because he firmly believed in the independent impact of a given medium to affect the very content of the message.

In this talk I will "channel" some of Marshall McLuhan's insights on technology and social research, as I present my thoughts on the variety of ways newly emergent technologies challenge our basic research practices and upend traditional disciplinary points of view regarding such foundational questions as: What is the nature of the social world? Who can know? What can be known?
