Young researchers taught useful skills


June 2, 2016


A two-day seminar on Teaching and Research was organised by Department of English of Fatima Jinnah Women University in collaboration with English Language Teaching Reforms (ELTR) project of Higher Education Commission (HEC), Islamabad.

The seminar was attended by around 30 English teachers of the government colleges of Rawalpindi/Islamabad/Gujar Khan and Kahuta and eight MPhil PhD scholars of FJWU. 

The purpose was to educate faculty/young researchers in developing useful research skills that would not only increase their value as future researchers but also to help them in this learning process.

In the first day of seminar, Dr. Sarwet Rasul talked about the methods of research from idea to topic and to hypothesis. She also conducted a session on choosing research paradigms: qualitative vs. quantitative research. In the 2nd day of seminar Prof. Dr Samina Amin Qadir talked about how researchers can publish research. Prof Dr. Raja Nasim Akhtar highlighted the issues of data collection. He emphasized that learning new skills and techniques of teaching are important to face the challenges of 21st century.

After the last session of the workshop, a panel discussion was carried out in which the participants asked numerous questions from the panellists. The panellists were Prof. Dr. Samina Amin Qadir (Vice Chancellor, FJWU), Dr. Sarwat Rasul, and Dr. Saman Saif.

Adviser Research and Development Division Higher Education Commission Islamabad Dr. Muhammad Latif was the Chief Guest and Professor Dr. Samina Amin Qadir was the Guest of Honor of the closing ceremony of this workshop.

In the closing ceremony, Professor Dr Samina Amin Qadir, vice chancellor of the FJWU, paid her gratitude to all the faculty members/researchers who attended the workshop from the various colleges of Rawalpindi/Islamabad. She also appreciated all the guest speakers for the informative discussion and dissemination of their original experiences throughout the two days of workshop. She further said higher education has seen a remarkable progress in Pakistan recently with an increasing number of students enrolling for master's and doctoral degrees. However, research culture in the country is still far from being inspiring which is continually affected the calibre of Pakistani students. To overcome this issue FJWU always guides its faculty/young researchers and other stake holders through seminars and workshops.
