Navigating the Accessibility in A Mixed Methods Study (On Demand: Recorded)
Main Topic: Deaf Community
Session Type: Skill Share
Mixed Methods research becomes an important technique for advocacy and social justice for the Deaf community. As an international Deaf researcher, I address the challenges and solutions of providing accessibility in a mixed-methods study with deaf and hearing participants. I discuss designing the reliability and validity in methods to understand this accessibility, including data collection, data analysis, and data interpretation. I offer contributions to the field of mixed methods study for research scholars who are interested in conducting their research with deaf/disabled populations and vice versa. I hope that those discussions help researchers in preparation for mixed methods research during the pandemic with transcultural and linguistic competence – internationally and nationally.
At the end of this session, participants will:
- Increase their knowledge of mixed methods study and its design types.
- Discuss the challenges and solutions of making accessibility in mixed methods study.
- Prepare for their mixed methods research with transcultural and linguistic competence.
Keywords: Mixed Methods Study, Accessibility, Transcultural and Linguistic Competence, Hearing and Deaf Populations
