U.S Consulate-General Links American Fulbright Scholars with Chrisland University to help Strengthen Research, Development
The U.S Consulate-General, Lagos has linked American Fulbright Scholars with Chrisland University, Abeokuta, to help boost the university's research and development capabilities by delivering thesis writing training for both students and staff.
While speaking at the workshop on Friday, the scholars deliberated on steps to choosing research topics, planning, reading and researching, outlining relevant research trends and statement of problem, analyzing sources, and drafting.
In explaining the significance of proper research design, the scholars stated that the results of the synthesis may be generalized and the findings may be projected into the broader population with more validity than most other types of studies.
According to the scholars, obtaining information relevant to the research problem in social sciences generally entails specifying the type of evidence needed to test a theory, to evaluate a program, or to accurately describe and assess meaning related to an observable phenomenon.
The visit was sponsored by the U.S. Embassy’s Public Affairs Section through the auspices of the U.S. Department of State’s Fulbright Specialist Program.
The Fulbright Specialist Programme is a short-term complement to the more widely known U.S. Fulbright Scholar Programme which sends American academics and professionals abroad to consult, research, and promote discussion as subject matter specialists.
The Program, which has been operating in over 160 countries since 1946 to encourage worldwide educational and cultural exchanges among prominent and talented students, academics, teachers, and professionals from all professions, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.
