Bugema University Hosts NEMRA 8th Research Workshop

Bugema University has commended NEMRA for enhancing capacity building for postgraduate research. This was at the network's 8th research workshop held at the University's Kampala branch in Makerere Kikoni over the weekend.

Participants at the NEMRA's 8th workshop held in Bugema University.

The Dean Graduate School, Dr. Rosette Kabuye commended the network for organizing the workshops and networking opportunities to share knowledge with students and academicians.

“We are excited to have been given an opportunity to host and benefit from the knowledge offered on research and we hope you keep Bugema in the network,” she said.

In her welcome remarks she also appreciated the role NEMRA has taken on in providing a platform for interuniversity collaboration and networking.

NEMRA holds monthly research workshops, seminars and stakeholder engagements to develop insights into research areas, share ideas and develop networks.

“We are targeting universities and non-academic institutions to partner with to improve the academic research output in the region,” said Christine Mwebesa, one of the founders of NEMRA.

The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Loice Natukunda who engaged participants on making sense of qualitative data using principles from grounded theory.

By the end of the workshop, participants were able to rationalize their choice for using qualitative data and how to apply grounded theory principles to derive meaning from their qualitative data.

The next workshop will be held on 27th July 2019 at Resilient Africa Network (RAN) Lab, Makerere University School of Public Health on Plot 28, Upper Kololo Terrace in Kampala.
