CAPACITY BUILDING SUPPORT

Capacity building support to research scholars and faculty

The Office of the Deputy Director (Research) regularly organizes workshops and capacity building interventions on various themes for scholars and faculty. Through these workshops and interventions, a multitude of learning opportunities are provided to scholars on four broad areas: Philosophy of Social Science Research, Methodology and Analysis, Usage of Technology in Research, and Academic Writing Skills. Hence, the workshops become learning spaces in multiple ways as scholars deepen their own knowledge base or skill set and also benefit from the cross pollination of ideas with their own peers and resource persons. The resource persons for the workshops are from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. Hence, the workshops become learning spaces in multiple ways as scholars deepen their own knowledge base or skill set and also benefit from the cross pollination of ideas with their own peers and resource persons.
