The faculty and staff of the Institute of Natural Sciences (INS) attended the Workshop in Doing Research last September 30, 2010 at the 2nd Floor of the New Building Function Room of Saint Mary’s University (SMU). This workshop was a joint project of INS and the Fungal and Systematics Group of the Research Center for the Natural Sciences of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) – Manila. This workshop was conceptualized to train the faculty and staff of the Institute to become competent researchers in conducting basic and applied researches in the field of natural sciences.

Specifically, this workshop was organized
  1. to intensify the research capabilities of the INS faculty and staff by understanding the science and art of doing research;
  2. to formulate research topics, objectives, design, and research plan of the study; and
  3. to be informed on how to give and present scientific researches both in oral and poster format.
The resource speakers and facilitators for the said workshop were Dr. Rer. Nat. Thomas Edison E. dela Cruz (UST), Mr. Jeremy Martin O. Torres (UST), Ms. Marie Grace B. Lavadia (UST), Ms. Sittie Aisha B. Macabago (UST), and Mrs. Melfei Bungihan (SMU). The workshop consisted of two parts: the lecture portion and the workshop proper. The topics that were discussed during the workshop included the following: “The science and art of doing research: why and how we do it?”; “Formulating research topic and objectives of study”, Designing your research plan”, Writing up your research studies,” and “Giving oral and poster presentation.” After a series of lecture and workshop, the faculty and staff of the INS were given an opportunity to present their research outputs per discipline, that is, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. After the presentation of research outputs, the other groups were given the chance to critique the work of their colleagues.

It was observed that the workshop was indeed a success. The participants from the said workshop were motivated to do basic and applied researches in their respective field of expertise in the future.
