Research is a key area for the university, and enormous effort and investment has been put into setting up structures to create an enabling environment for researchers, inclusive of staff and students.
The reporting of research outputs is thus an important initiative that all Faculties adhere to periodically throughout the year by hosting seminars of this kind.
Dr Sarala Krishnamurthy, the Dean of FHS, encouraged research collaboration between institutions specifically with the University of Namibia. Dr Dolores Wolfaardt, a senior lecturer at Unam’s Curriculum Instruction and Assessment Studies Department, gave the researchers tips on setting questions papers.
The papers presented covered various topics, including Comparative Best Practices to Manage Corruption, The Underachievement of Grade 12 Learners of English: A Case Study of a Rural School in Oshikoto Region, Ethical Considerations for Research Involving Human Beings, and The Effectiveness and Sustainability of the Namibian Police Force Strategies and Efforts to Prevent Poaching in Namibia: A Case of Etosha National Park.
