This research boot camp will provide trainees with necessary mentoring to develop their thesis/dissertation and journal articles for publication. This will include intensive training on research methods under the one-on-one guidance of senior professors at ICT-U and the Southern University. The training will be hands-on in the use of statistical applications for research including robust applications such as PLS which is used for structural equation modeling. In addition to the above, trainees will learn how to develop grant proposals to sustain personal and institutional research activities.
As part of the package, e-learning course development and implementation training will be given to university lecturers, providing skills to develop and use e-learning platforms to teach their university courses using distance learning. At the end of it all, a three-day educational bus tour around the south eastern region of the United States to selected universities (from among Houston – Texas, Birmingham – Alabama, Jackson – Mississippi, Atlanta – Georgia, Pensacola – Florida, and New Orleans – Louisiana) will be organized.
