The unprecedented recent economic growth, the values of knowledge and education shared by a billion diverse people, and the investments made over the last half century, all point to India’s potential future as a knowledge economy. The present juncture is critical for Indian science. As a major positive step would play a key role in taking India to a leading position in the future, but inaction or suboptimal action would accelerate the national decline.

He said Education research is the scientific field of study that examines education and learning processes and the human attributes, interactions, organizations and institutions that shape educational outcomes. Scholarship in the field seeks to describe, understand and explain how learning takes place throughout a person’s life and how formal and informal contexts of education affect all forms of learning. Education research embraces the full spectrum of rigorous methods appropriate the question being asked and also drives the development of new tools and methods.

Dr. Soney C. George, Centre of Nano Technology, AJCE and Dr. Jacob Philips, Director STIC, CUSAT discussed the correct method to write Research Proposals and Filling Patents. Dr. George said that all researchers need to plan in advance of an investigation. He said the process starts when a research problem is selected. As one makes decision there shall be planning guide to complete assistance in scaffolding the research project design. One may also use the earlier material about research methodology that helps to make decisions.

According to Dr. Philips thesis goes in the introductory paragraph. So it must be clearly asserted at the beginning of the paper. The thesis must make an argument. It is the road map to the argument that will subsequently develop in the thesis paper. The key difference between an opinion statement and thesis statement is that a thesis conveys to the reader that the claim being offered has been thoroughly explored and is defendable by evidence.

Mr. Joe A Skaria, Director, Management Development Centre, Amal Jyothi College ended the seminar with a vote of thanks.
