Monthly Webinar Series: Conceptual and Theoretical Framework
Choosing a subject for scientific enquiry and identifying a suitable topic can be one of the most daunting tasks for post graduate students. Dr Collin Pillay introduced this dilemma in his opening statements at our Monthly Research Webinar on Friday, 27th May 2022. 

The virtual session brings together a cohort of city officials from eThekwini Municipality who are in different stages of their masters and doctoral studies. Using the foundations of Literature Review Model, Dr Pillay highlighted that whilst the subject of most social science enquiries draws from conflicts, issues, concerns or beliefs - it is the students’ passion and emotional well-being which drives curiosity which provides the personal energy and motivation towards any action. 

This set the scene for a key presentation offered by Dr Evans Shoko, a post-doctoral student at UKZN who unpacked the key elements of how and why conceptual and theoretical frameworks are central to any research endeavour. Dr Shoko’s lively presentation stimulated a robust and engaging response from the cohort during the Q&A session of the webinar.

Dr Shoko was thanked for his personal commitment towards supporting the cohort of city officials in their research journey and for adding to the success of the Monthly Research Webinar Series.
