Invitation to Participate in a Refresher Course on Research Methodology in Social Sciences for University Lecturers and Supervisors of Masters and PhD Students

Monday February 24, 2014 - Friday March 7, 2014

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.
