About the Workshop

Capacity building and personality development have become key requirement for survival in today’s global environment, particularly in academia, where advancements have become more dynamic than previously. In the social sciences, research has become so important to faculty members that professional progress without it is nearly impossible. The inclusion of this feature in the new national education policy, 2020, has increased the value of social science research. Given the importance of capacity building programmes in academics, it has become necessary to use this as an opportunity to strengthen our affirmative action policies in higher education by organising such training with a priority for young faculty (regular/ad hoc/contractual). In light of the current pandemic situation, the training programme will be
conducted in offline format, which will provide a conducive safe environment for learners and resource persons to participate in this academic exercise with safety measures during workshop.

  • 1) To improve research skills through erudite lectures on social research topics.
  • 2) To provide knowledge on how to write a research proposal for a project.
  • 3) To gain a better understanding of how to do qualitative research.
  • 4) To provide learners with understanding about how to conduct social research.
  • 5) To teach writing skills with a concentration on peer-reviewed journals.
