The International Society for Quantitative Ethnography is hosting a new pre-conference series that will furnish an opportunity for researchers new to QE and ENA to develop an introductory technical exposure to the ENA software tool.

The cost of registration is waived due to generous support and sponsorship from the National Science Foundation.

This Online QE Accelerator consists of 5 virtual sessions over the course of four weeks where you will connect with facilitators from around the globe in various disciplines that utilize QE methods and tools, including ENA, within their own research. Each session will build from the previous to familiarize you on data formatting, segmentation, coding, validation, and modeling using the ENA software tool.

Alongside these sessions, each mentor will provide additional support for participants and their research. The Accelerator stands as a welcoming entrance into the QE field while equipping participants with the resources and support to connect further with the community, ISQE events, and the ICQE annual conference.
