For our seminar, we unpack our experiences and the resulting paper presented at the ISQE 2021 conference. The seminar looks at how a diverse team from multiple countries and research disciplines worked together with the QE tools to investigate how the different countries in Scandinavia responded at the beginning of 2020 (January to March). We use our paper, "Governmental Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic-A Quantitative Ethnographic Comparison of Public Health Authorities' Communication in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden", as a case to explore and reflect on the tools and team building. The seminar explores the challenges and opportunities of working with these tools.
