Biography

Timothy C. Guetterman, PhD, is an Associate Professor at Creighton University and a methodologist focused on research design and mixed methods research. He teaches mixed methods workshops to interdisciplinary audiences in the US, South Africa, UK, Germany, Denmark, Korea, and Japan.  He writes to advance rigorous methods of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research, particularly strategies for interesting and integrating qualitative and quantitative research. Tim is the PI of National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded research that uses quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research to investigate the use of virtual human technology in health, education, and assessment. He also conducts research on teaching, learning, and developing research methods capacity as Co-PI of a William T. Grant Foundation qualitative and mixed methods research capacity building grant and in his role as evaluator and Co-I for the NIH Mixed Methods Research Training Program for the Health Sciences. Tim has extensive professional experience conducting program evaluation with a focus on educational and healthcare programs. He co-authored with John W. Creswell, Educational Research: Planning, Conducting, and Evaluating Quantitative and Qualitative Research (6th ed). Tim is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Mixed Methods Research (IF: 3.524, #1 of 104 in Social Sciences, Interdisiplinary).
