Workshops  

Important: We are not planning to have an additional charge for attending workshops because we believe these topics play an important role in community-building.

  • Introduction to Epistemic Network Analysis
    Participants will be introduced to Epistemic Network Analysis (ENA) and use it with their own data or datasets provided to them.
  • Introduction to Automated Coding and nCoder
    Participants will work individually and in teams to step through the process of identifying, defining, classifying, and validating a code or set of codes using nCoder and rho.
  • Advanced Epistemic Network Analysis
    Participants will be introduced to and work with advanced features of Epistemic Network Analysis (ENA) in rENA and the webtool.

Welcome
This is a chance to register, get conference materials and meeting other conference participants

Paper Panels
Instead of the traditional symposium where presenters give a talk about their work and then there is a short discussion at the end of this symposium, we will have a carefully moderated discussion among senior scholars about this new field and its relationship to other work, other disciplines, and methods.

Each panel will have three 10-minute paper presentations including time for questions, followed by a moderated panel with the presenters where they will interact with each other’s ideas.

Poster Session (Santa Monica)
Learn about QE work in its formative stages, ask questions, give feedback and suggestions. This is a great chance to see where the QE community is headed and meet potential collaborators!
