Hi, everyone. I got a chance to attend a workshop on SPSS and I thought of sharing what I learned, what we should expect and how can you retain what we learn in a workshop. It was a ten days workshop. We started with an introduction as usual and fortunately, our tutor was highly experienced and he was aware of the nerves of both SPSS and our level of understanding.
Tutor and other faculties tried their best to explain to us what they had experienced over the years. It was effective and smooth. It gave a long-lasting learning. However, any workshop attended is always time, resource and people constrained in nature.
Let’s break it here now. I will tell you in points what was the overall learning.
1. As tutors are always great in the workshop you can expect to learn good outcomes
2. Tutors have enough knowledge that you can get almost any query answered.
3. You can discuss your research problem if you want to.
4 Without keeping on practising you will only retain the name of tutor and workshop.
5Workshop are meant to bring enthusiasm, time-bound learning and fruitful future commitments
6 Workshops give you glimpses of very out of box knowledge of your specific area so keep making notes
7 Workshops also help you develop the network and create your own research peer group to discuss problems in future also.
8 It also helps to gain knowledge of the new source, new data sets, new techniques etc
I would like to conclude with this point that a researcher must attend a few of the good workshop. These effectively help a researcher to refresh and bring new determinations and commitment to research. I will be waiting for your comments and responses.
Thank you all
