Training – Workshop on Teaching Research: Trends and Best Practices

Every researcher aims to produce quality research outputs, but due to lack of knowledge and scientific skills, it appears to be difficult to achieve. Every institution should keep abreast of the latest international trends and practices in teaching research. With this, the Association of Scholarly Editors in cooperation with Philippine Association of Institutions for Research Inc. invites you and your colleagues to participate in the Training – Workshop on Teaching Research: Trends and Best Practices. The training will be held from October 26 to 29, 2016 at Pasay City, Manila. This is a follow up post from previous Invitation.
