As part of its capacity-building mission, the Office for Undergraduate Research held an abstract-writing workshop on January 16, 2019, at the Berbice Campus, under the theme ‘Doing research, writing reports, making impacts’.
More than 50 students from both the Turkeyen and Tain campuses attended the workshop, which was facilitated by the Director, Dr. Troy Thomas; the Assistant Director, Ms. Pamela Rose; and Mr. Lenandlar Singh, a member of the advisory council.
During workshop sessions, students examined samples of abstracts, identified features, carried out critical analysis and wrote abstracts.
Students were enthusiastic about the knowledge that they gained and expressed a desire to have the workshop repeated for the benefit of even larger numbers of students.
