Scientific writing and data collection can be two areas that postgraduate students struggle with the most during their degrees. To assist in overcoming these challenging areas, participants resumed the fourth session of the five-part Postgraduate Research Support Workshop series. The learning event took place from 13-14 February at eThekwini’s Electricity Training Centre.
On the topic of Scientific Writing and Data Collection, participants were exposed to various tools to enhance their research capacity such as participatory mapping, qualitative and quantitative methods, and online surveying sites.
The participants from the current cohort are now prepared to finish the last session of the series in March 2017. The last session will wrap up five months of engagement on best practices for succeeding as practitioners conducting postgraduate research.
This session was facilitated under the leadership of partners from University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN). The workshop is hosted by MILE in partnership with eThekwini Municipal Academy and UKZN.
