This essay is part of a series titled Learning PECE, created to facilitate an initial introduction to working on the PECE platform.
This session discusses some of the motivations and rationales behind PECE and its development. We also go over a few essential terms and concepts that will be important as we progress through the rest of the sessions.
PECE was designed to provide research architecture for deeply collaborative ethnography, to enable secure and sustainable data sharing and archiving, and to incorporate lessons learned from post-structural theories of language into research methodology and data analysis.
