Hands-on learning


The skill development session would comprise lectures on quantitative and qualitative research tools and techniques and research communication. There will be two counselling sessions on careers in sustainability research were participants will get a chance to interact one-on-one with resource persons. The research communication session would also provide tips to the participants on how to frame their research in a simplified manner and thus reach broader audiences. Hands-on training shall be provided to the participants by taking them through a research proposal development workshop wherein they would brainstorm on ideas, develop research questions, define aims and objectives, understand how to conduct literature review and list out methods that can be used for conducting research.
