THE MIXED METHODS INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION - CARIBBEAN CHAPTER (MMIRA-CC)

The MMIRACC was founded in March 2017 in Jamaica and is chaired by Dr. Loraine Cook, School of Education, Mona. This chapter is committed to creating a forum in which persons can share cutting-edge ideas and best practice recommendations regarding the integration of qualitative and quantitative approaches to problem-solving. This recently formed chapter is dedicated to transforming the ways in which phenomena can be understood and transform decision-making practices to enable our individual and collective development. Dr. Vimala Kamalodeen is the incumbent chair and is working to bring awareness of mixed methods to the UWI, St. Augustine and other research institutions. After the conference in march 2019, we hope to offer workshops at various institutions to meet the needs of various persons and agendas. 
The website is in formation and information about the chapter will soon be released.
