ISAS has several years of experience providing training/workshop sessions on themes as wide ranging as the ones given below for scholars and researchers as well as educational staff from K-12 institutions and colleges and universities both in the US as well as from South Asia.

  • UC Berkeley Graduate Student Workshop.
    ISAS organizes a dissertation writing / support group for all students who are interested in sharing and receiving feedback on their work. The group meets once or twice a month and serves as a forum to share their writing -- from a dozen pages to a chapter -- with graduate student colleagues. Our hope is that this group will also help motivate and structure the dissertating process and make it less isolating.
  • UC Berkeley Workshop on Methodological Tools for Social Scientists.
    Developed for the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B), an international health research organization located in Dhaka, this two-week long course included workshops on: Research design, Interviews and coding, Gender analysis, Community based participatory methods, Survey Research, Experimental design for project evaluation, Evaluating PoUs, Library research, Modes of explanation in the social sciences and Writing for social scientists. Site visits to the Center for Global Health and the Center for Neglected Diseases were also a part of the workshop.
