The workshop aimed at providing students, researchers, and faculty members with the basic concepts and methodologies of statistical analysis for research purposes.
The training workshop featured a presentation by Dr. Bernard Lim, an experienced researcher and statistician. Dr. Lim shared his expertise on the use of statistical tools such as hypothesis testing, linear and logistic regression analysis, and data interpretation. He also emphasized the importance of properly designing research studies and collecting relevant data that can be analyzed using statistical techniques.
Hence, the training workshop was attended by the active-faculty researchers, language editors, statisticians, and other research enthusiasts. Participants were encouraged to engage in interactive discussions and hands-on exercises that helped them to apply the statistical concepts to real-world scenarios.
At the end of the training workshop, the participants expressed their gratitude to the Panday- Dunong Research Center for providing them with an opportunity to enhance their research skills.
