Paper, Workshop, Seminar Paper A research paper is a piece of academic writing that requires a more abstract, critical and thoughtful level of inquiry than you might be used to. You will gradually pick up that mindset the more you envelop yourself in tutorial discussions and lectures at the college level and of course, the more you write. Not just research papers but any paper
Types of Research Paper There are generally two types of research paper, which are as follows: 1. Analytical Papers 2. Argumentative (or Persuasive) Papers
Workshop To sustain and diversify outstanding technical workforce in research fields will require significant creativity and investment in educational infrastructure so that more students, particularly freshmen and sophomores will be encouraged
Some of the major benefits of participation in the workshop are as under: (a)Development of skills (b)Thinking and working like a scientist (c) Clarification of educational and career goals (d)Enhanced preparation for future career (lecturer, manager etc.) te seleonfidence as a researcher taken seriously by others (f) Socialization into the profession (g)Sense of responsibility and independence as a researcher
Objectives of the Workshop The objectives of the workshop are to: 1. Define and refine the problem of enhancing and expanding the opportunities for researcher 2. Consider alternative models of research through presentations of model programmes
Seminar When you are presenting the seminar on oral report, focus on common problem areas such as these: 1. Timing 2. Volume 3. Pacing and Speed 4. Gestures and Posture 5. Verbal Crutches
Planning and Preparing Visuals for Oral Presentations 1. Transparencies for overhead projector 2. Posterboard-size charts 3. Handouts 4. Objects

So, the format of thesis will contain the following sequence:
2. Purpose, Objectives and Scope 3. Review of Literature 4. Materials, Equipment, Facilities 5. Theory, Methods and Procedures 6. Results, Findings and Data 7. Discussion, Conclusions and Recommendations 8. Bibliography

Review of Related Literature Here the researcher will see whether he has adequately covered the literature? Is the researcher commented adequately? Has he justified that his studies has deviation from earlier studies?
Methodology Is the research design clear and described in detail? Is the method adequate? Is the sampling procedure correct? Are data collecting tools appropriate? Are validity and reliability of tools established? Is the statistical treatment appropriate? Is the representation of data comprehensive and understandable?
