The day prior to the ESCP symposium, the ESCP Research Committee hosts a one-day Research Masterclass. This is available to members and non-members and can also be attended by those not planning to come to the symposium.

The masterclass caters to researchers who are new to mixed methods research and those who are currently undertaking research involving a mixed methods approach. It involves a combination of short presentations and participant-led group work and discussion.

Attendees will learn about the typologies of mixed methods research and the associated advantages and limitations. They will gain practical insights into designing and conducting a mixed research project, including how to triangulate findings.
