In the framework of my PhD project, I undertook a research stay at Middlesex University Mauritius (www.middlesex.mu) at the beginning of 2019. In return for the university’s hospitality, I agreed to develop a research workshop series and thus to contribute to the university’s research goals. Together with Adeelah Kodabux and Denisha Seedoyal-Seereekissoon (current PhD students at Middlesex University Mauritius), we designed five workshops on the “Craft of Doing Research.” The workshops were targeted at current and future PhD students from Middlesex University Mauritius to provide valuable inputs on designing research projects successfully.
