The course was well-organized and had a clear structure. The instructors' extensive knowledge and experience in qualitative research were truly inspiring and provided valuable guidance for my own project plans. As someone with no prior experience in qualitative research, this course equipped me with the necessary skills and insights to confidently embark on my own project.
