Prof. Maria Musoke Opening remarks

The feedback generated by participants was encouraging and motivational. Mr. Patrick Odong (1st year Ph.D. Class Coordinator) said, “he was initially reluctant to presenter but now realizes its importance because he had now been steered in the right direction.”  Additional comments from Prof. Tonny Oyana were that the Ph.D. students should focus on the structure of the literature review and ensure to understand the concept of big data and how it applies to Uganda. Prof. Maria Musoke also advised them to cite the specific papers and quote the authors where necessary. Dr. Joyce Bukirwa advised all the presenters that they should effectively communicate the aim/purpose of the study or research being undertaken and avoid contradicting statements.
In closing Prof. Maria Musoke thanked those that participated in the research seminar. She appreciated them for getting the opportunity to share information and knowledge and critiquing each other’s work.
