OSSREA refresher course - PhD research methodology training
March 4, 2013
Having the objective of producing highly qualified experts and researchers, many of the tertiary education institutions in sub-Saharan Africa are training PhD students. Whilst the training is showing encouraging results, some of the programs in the social sciences and humanities, however, have basic problems, especially weaknesses in the research methodology courses offered to PhD candidates. OSSREA's Experience Sharing Workshop on PhD Research Methodology Training in Social Sciences attended by officials and senior members of universities in the region has appreciated the challenges faced by higher learning institutions and decided that OSSREA organizes interactive refresher courses for university lecturers who teach research methodology courses offered for Masters and PhD students.
Accordingly, OSSREA is organizing a two weeks research methodology training workshop (20th
May to 1st June 2013) to be held in Lusaka, Zambia.
