Annabel Arndt & Chris Buckingham (2010)
Annabel Arndt & Chris Buckingham (2010) Can use strengths of one method to overcome weaknesses in another. Quan can be followed by Qual to neutralise bias/simplicity & add some flesh to the bones. Data can be at the micro OR macro level. Potential to validate findings through convergence & corroboration. Appeals to a larger audience. Quan often blows raspberries at Qual & sees it as too simplistic, decontextualised and reductionist. Researchers often lack the skills to use both methods. Diversity of possible methods is huge & dangerous.
