1st Training on Research Methodologies

The 1st Training on Research Methodologies was conducted on 26 January 2018 by the Economics Department of Epoka University. Participants from a wide variety of backgrounds took part in two training workshops.

The first workshop focused on building effective research teams and was taught by Dr. Timothy Hagen. In the workshop, participants developed simulation research teams and drafted policies to support effective team functioning.

The second workshop provided an introduction to quantitative analysis using SPSS and was taught by Dr. Naqeeb Ur Rehman. In the workshop, participants had the opportunity to learn about econometric models, data, and analyses, and run and interpret example regression analyses.

At the conclusion of this training, participants received certificates. Yet in addition to the technical training and certificates, the sessions and associated social interactions offered participants an opportunity to network with other researchers at various stages in their careers and explore opportunities for future collaborative work.

The Training on Research Methodologies is anticipated to be the first in a series of such trainings. The next training is expected to be offered in the latter part of 2018.
