Senior Instructor Lena Lavrencic

Ever since I can remember, I was a storyteller and an endlessly curious person. This is how I became a cultural anthropologist-a person to whom nothing is too ordinary to study, question, and understand. The human experiences, emotions, and motivations are the ultimate source of fascination for me. For the last 3 years, I am an independent researcher, mainly working in the market, public and digital research. I specialise in qualitative research, especially ethnography and in-depth interviews. I worked across industries, from technology, automotive, healthcare to policy, and sustainability. I coordinated several multinational research projects and I have countless hours of fieldwork behind me. I enjoy sharing my knowledge about the industries and research, through presentations, talks, workshops, and lectures I do. Also, I am a passionate ethical fashion advocate and writer.

The content in this course was comprehensive and detailed. I found the discussions of Sampling, Analysis, and Writing particularly useful. I loved that the modules included resource lists with additional reading and sometimes pdf’s of useful articles and research manuals. The organization of the course makes it simple to go back and reference sections and resources later. I will be recommending this course to my student researchers for sure.

I am incredibly grateful for this outstanding course on qualitative research methods. As a researcher, I needed to expand my methodological toolkit to include qualitative approaches, and this course provided me with the knowledge and confidence to do just that. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, and engaging, making the learning experience both enjoyable and effective. Thanks to her guidance, I have been able to incorporate qualitative methods into my research projects, which has significantly enriched my findings and bolstered my academic credentials. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone looking to master qualitative research methods and elevate their research capabilities.
