The analysis, description, and interpretation of data are important steps in conducting research. They present an insight into what the researcher has derived out of the entire data. Due to this fact, the Association of Graduate Students of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (PGSS FSSH) has organized a structured course entitled “Analyzing, Describing, and Interpreting Data (For Qualitative Research)” on Monday 16th August 2021. The program was conducted by our PGSS team and led by Iswaran Gunasegaran. 

The two-hours structured course was delivered online via Webex. It started at 10.00 am until 12.00 pm and included a Question-and-Answer (Q&A) session between the panel and the participants. In the pre-registration phase, there were 208 registrations, but 212 participants from different faculties have attended the program. The participants were UTM postgraduate students and Staff. At the end of the course, the invited panel Prof. Dr Zuraidah Binti Mohd Don has received positive and constructive feedback from the participants regarding the knowledge sharing session. 

According to the feedback given by the participants, this event was very helpful and beneficial because it will help them in the data analysis phase of their research. The participants also appreciated that the session was very detailed, informative, and interactive. Moreover, they stated that the speaker was clear and straightforward in answering their questions, therefore, each of the participants’ curiosity was answered during the session.
