Al-Salt Workshop for Journalists
In mid-October 2011, Dr. Ali Hyasat led a discussion at the Edaa Research Center for journalists detailing the work of the Edaa Research Center and its planned contribution to the Al-Salt community. Dr. Ali’s presentation emphasized the three pillars of the Edaa Research Center – tourism, environment, and culture – and how these fit into the context of the local community.
How, for example, can local businesses utilize research to discover their respective target audiences? How can the Edaa Research Center serve as a vehicle for expanding the use of research in and around the local community – whether for businesses or NGOs?
Middle East University
From 31 October – 2 November 2011 training, Dr. Fawwaz Al Hammad (pictured above) of the Edaa Research Center provided an overview of research for students at the Middle East University. Dr. Fawwaz spent several hours with students each day presenting the various elements of the research process, providing examples and fielding questions from attendees.
The primary purpose of Dr. Fawwaz’s efforts is to encourage young people to see the importance of research methodology and research methods in their everyday life experiences, not merely in the classroom setting. How can research be used in business, for example, once students have completed their studies and are actively pursuing their careers.
Such discussions will hopefully reinforce students appreciation of research in the classroom as they will see its relevance in the “real world” that awaits them upon graduation from their studies.
