Panel Discussions

The World Conference on Qualitative Research devotes a relevant space to the dissemination of methodologies and results of research conducted by research groups. To that end, the WCQR2020 will include several Panel Discussions presented by Research Groups, subordinated to themes related to the projects developed by these groups and aligned with the WCQR topics. The Organizing Committee invites Research Groups to send proposals for Panel Discussions to WCQR2019.

The Panel Sessions aim to provide opportunities for debate and valuable discussions allowing the exchange of experiences, offer new perspectives, theories and concepts in the areas of human and social sciences, as well as technology and education, based on qualitative research.
