THE PhD SUMMER SCHOOL SEMINAR

 

PHD SUMMER SCHOO SEMINAR

The PhD school seminar which was held at Makerere University, to address the various challenges faced by graduate students in the East African Region has been concluded.

 

The challenges include among others poor facilitation and inadequate support to PhD holders which explains the low research output in high impact forums. These observations motivated senior professor from University of Groningen Prof. Dr. H.G. (Henk) Sol to support research activities in the region.

The seminar which was organised by the College of Computing and Information Sciences took place at RURORUM, from 10th to 14th August, 2015 is one of the moves towards enabling PhD students become more effective, efficient, and confident researchers. This was a hands-on course that emphasized interactive examples and practice.

Prof. Dr. Henk G. Sol a world renowned scholar of Information Systems research. Professor Henk has supervised over 800 masters’ students, promoted 78 PhDs and currently has over 20 PhD students near completion at the University of Groningen under his PhD school of engaged scholars.

Participants were PhD students in both science and humanities at various levels of their research from Makerere University, Kyambogo University, Busitema University, Mbrarara University of Science and Technology, Ministry of Energy – Kenya and UTAMU.

The presentations provided researchers with more knowledge on research methodologies and approaches, philosophies, the writing process, original manuscript format, scientific writing issues and how to communicate with the lay public.

The organizers of the seminar were Dr. Gilbert Maiga the Dean, School of Computing and Informatics Technology Makerere University. The co-facilitators included; Dr. Mercy Amiyo, Makerere University, Dr. Raphael Aregu , Gulu University, Dr. Annabela Ejiri Habinka, Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Prof. Jude Lubega, Uganda Management and Technology University, and Dr. Paul Ssemaluluu, Makerere University.
