I Mixed methods della ricerca in Linguistica educativa

Giuseppe Maugeri


This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of Mixed Methods Approach in a field such as Educational Linguistics. Therefore we start from the current conceptual framework of Mixed Methods to highlight the research advantages to set up an educational action - research project with an appropriate mixed method design that combines qualitative and quantitative data in order to have a better understanding of research problems and complex phenomena.
