A training workshop on New Synopsis Format (MS/MPhil/PhD) based on ‘Pitching Research’ concept was organized by UoH for capacity building of researchers. Prof. Robert Faff from University of Queensland, Australia graced the occasion as resource person. More than 100 participants including VC, Dean, Chairmen, Departmental heads, faculty members and research students attended this session.
Dr. Abid Farid, Vice Chancellor, UoH formally opened the session by a welcome note to Prof. Faff and Mr. Ihtisham A. Malik and discussed in detail the motivation for adopting “Pitching Research” concept by UoH as official synopsis format and also explained the implementation process.
Dr. Robert then elaborated the application of “Pitching Research”(accredited in top 30 innovations by AACSB) through a working example related to ‘First Aid’ (keeping in view the academic-diversity of the audience). It was considered one of the most valuable aspect by the participants.
The working example was followed by a valuable question and answer session which lasted for more than an hour. At the end, Dr. Shah Masaud Khan, Director, Advance studies & Research Board extended gratitude to Prof. Robert Faff for his valuable time and acknowledged the importance of his idea. Prof. Robert Faff also appreciated the dedication showed by UOH for organizing the workshop and extended his willingness to collaborate with UoH in future on the subject. The participants were thankful to UOH for providing such an opportunity to interact with a world class researcher from a top ranked university, UQ.
