Last October, we held the first annual International Conference on Quantitative Ethnography (ICQE19). During the community meeting, attendees expressed interest in more regular opportunities for engagement with others in the QE community. Many of you participated in the recent QE-COVID Data Challenge, and now we’re delighted to share with you another exciting new development.
Beginning in June, we will launch a monthly QE Webinar Series to showcase emerging research and the latest developments in quantitative ethnography! June will see a double-bill special to launch the series, and then from July they’ll be held on the first Thursday of each month (or Friday if you’re living in the future!).
2 June 2020 – 5:00 PM (CDT), 11:00pm (GMT), 8:00am +1 day (AEDT)
Visualizing patient decision-making processes regarding choice of therapy with Epistemic Network Analysis: A worked example of manual coding and segmentation
Szilvia Zörgő (Semmelweis University, Hungary) and Gjalt-Jorn Peters (Open University of the Netherlands) will discuss challenges and strategies for implementing QE analyses on continuous narratives, such as interviews.
15 June 2020 – 5:00 PM (CDT), 11:00pm (GMT), 8:00am +1 day (AEDT)
The influence of discipline on teachers’ knowledge and decision making
Michael Phillips (Monash University, AUS) will describe the use of epistemic network analysis to study how teachers’ knowledge shapes their decisions.
These one hour events will begin with a 30 minute presentation followed by 30 minutes of moderated discussion. We warmly invite you to join the event live, but of course you can replay it after. The 2020 webinar schedule is available online, and we’ll send email announcements prior to each one. Attendance is free and open to the public, but registration is required to receive each event’s link.
So check out the program, book your seats, and we look forward to seeing you at the first webinar on June 2!
