The Department of Fashion & Textiles organized a guest lecture for M.A/M.Sc./ Fashion Design by Dr. Vidushi, Associate Professor, World University of Design, Sonipat, Testing Hypothesis and Research Identification. 

The resource person focused on selecting research problem as a crucial element in guiding the complete research process. It shapes the sampling strategy, research design, analysis methods, and instruments required for the study. By clearly defining the research problem, students can ensure that their research is focused, relevant, and capable of providing meaningful insights and findings.  For instance, if the research problem aims to establish a cause-and-effect relationship between two variables, an experimental design with control and experimental groups may be appropriate. On the other hand, if the research problem seeks to explore the relationship between variables without manipulating them, a correlational design may be more suitable.

The lecture covered various methods for testing hypotheses, including experimental and observational approaches. The focus was to highlight the significance of precise and measurable hypotheses, underlining the role they play in guiding effective research efforts. The lecture also covered the need for research problem identification strategies to facilitate systematic data collection and analysis of the result. Moreover, the lecture addressed the ethical considerations of conducting research and testing hypotheses. 

Overall, the guest lecture provided valuable insights into the process of testing hypotheses and identifying relevant research. The principles discussed in the lecture were essential for producing meaningful and reliable research outcomes. 

Outcome of the activity:  

 The lecture helped students understand the importance of testing hypotheses and research problem identification, shaping the foundation for successful research endeavors.
