Research and development, shortly R&D is a very important development area for Estonian Aviation Academy these days. Keeping that in mind and wishing to promote these developments, it is useful to refresh the existing knowledge and get new tips and tricks.
On 14 January the first seminar on academic writing and research article publication
opened the series of seminars. The instructor was Mathilde Lind
who is a PhD student at the University of Indiana. During the seminar topics such as why we write, what a research article is, how to get started, how to put the article together as well as the publication process were covered. The language of instruction was English.
R&D-related training sessions continue in January and February. The next seminar takes place already on 31 January and then the theory and practice of quantitative methodology will be discussed.
