There is a critical need to conduct empirical studies on teaching mixed methods research (MMR). This study used a mixed methods process evaluation to provide practical guidance on effective design elements and impactful teaching approaches among five cohort groups of students (2016-2020) enrolled in a doctoral MMR course. Students engaged in hands-on data analyses with special attention to MMR writing structure. I shared topical outlines with corresponding teaching and learning activities from the design perspective, as well as course experience and impact including challenges and approaches taken to learn from student perspectives. I also highlighted four integrated course features/themes identified as the most helpful teaching approaches. The current study provides practical guidance on the integrated MMR course design and process evaluation contributing to the MMR field.
