Research Agenda Development (RAD)

Objectives and Design

The objectives of the RAD discussion-based session are to:

  • Provide a setting for RAD participants to discuss research ideas with other QE scholars, receive feedback, and move their QE study forward
  • Facilitate collaborations among QE researchers across countries and continents
  • Provide a forum for discussing theoretical and methodological issues of central importance to quantitative ethnography

The RAD discussion-based session will occur during the conference. All participants will engage in collaborative inquiry and scholarly discourse to move their research agendas foward and to advance their understanding of the field. Based on the content of their proposal, RAD authors will be matched with other QE scholars in the community for the session. No formal presentations will be required.

Who Should Apply?

The RAD track is open to scholars and researchers at all levels. Undergraduate students, graduate students, Ph.D. students, early-career scholars, senior scholars, and practitioners are all encouraged to submit proposals.

Some examples include: undergraduate or graduate students proposing their first QE study, faculty members trying to incorporate QE into their broader research agendas for the first time, or researchers looking for partners to experiment with QE methods in a new area.

How to Prepare and Submit a Proposal?

RAD proposals are two pages and should use the RAD proceedings template. Please view this sample proposal for further guidance. The proposal should be written in English, and submitted through the ICQE 2023 Conference System.
