Graduate School Holds Seminar on Graduate Level Reading

On November 10, the School of Graduate Studies hosted a seminar on “Strategies for Decoding Subject Specific Text for Graduate Level Reading,” facilitated by Dr. Hannah M. Mugambi, Assistant Professor of Writing.


Dr. Mugambi noted that graduate level studies are extremely demanding, especially for already busy adults, most of whom have jobs and young families to care for.

At the seminar, she gave useful strategies that the graduate students can employ to decipher the gist of technical texts and those that can help them tackle complex scientific articles.

During the workshop session, students worked as a team on an article and had a chance to apply what they learned from Mugambi's presentation.

A PhD Candidate in Information Systems, Ibrahim Inuwa, said the workshop has opened up the minds of students to understand how articles are usually written.

Dean of Graduate School, Dr. Charles Nche, said the seminar would help the students in writing a report on their projects.  

Mugambi has a PhD in Language, Literacy, and Culture.  Her current research interest is in Bilingualism.
