New course now available: Qualitative Methods for Conservation

Do you need to conduct research interviews with stakeholders? Are you grappling with text-based data – and wondering how words can even be data?

Qualitative research allows us to understand the complexity of people’s connection with nature and the challenges facing it. But many professionals in the conservation sector are not trained in qualitative methods.

This new course from Human Nature will train you in how to collect and analyse qualitative data. You’ll learn from experienced social scientist Dr Rebecca Jefferson, and develop your skills alongside people who share your ambitions to build this skill set.

This gives you the skills, practice and confidence to use qualitative research methods in your own projects.

Available online over five sessions 20th-24th November (£375) or in person over three days 5th to 7th December (London – £695) with discounted rates for charities and students.

Spaces limited to 20 per course.

About Human Nature

Human Nature is a social enterprise that supports conservation professionals to integrate social science into spaces traditionally dominated by natural science.  We understand that many people working in the conservation sector have considerable natural science expertise, but social sciences are often unfamiliar.  It is increasingly evident that the planetary crises need more than ecological evidence to solve them.  However, this realisation can leave conservation professionals feeling unsettled and unsure of what to do next.

Founded by Dr Rebecca Jefferson, published social scientist trained in both natural and social sciences, with over 15 years’ experience of bringing interdisciplinary expertise to the public and private sectors.

Human Nature provides training, workshops and strategic guidance to support individuals, teams and organisations to integrate conservation social science into their projects and organisations.
