One word that could best describe iHub research coffee hour which was held on the 28th day of September is ‘Revolutionary’. For a moment, or two, the entire iHub community had got to see what the research arm of the iHub does and exchange ideas.
At 3.30 pm, the community was treated to a 5 minute video
on the genesis and growth of iHub research. A brief introduction of the research members and the projects they are currently engaged in followed.
Perhaps the best part was the personal interaction with the iHub community. iHub members got to ask questions, establish networks and forge new friendships with the members of the iHub Research team. We foresee future exciting research projects with the community from the feedback we received.
A section of the community wanted to know how research is done, and what steps are followed in any research, as well as what types of research that iHub Research does. The greatest lesson learnt was that research allows you to pursue your interests, to learn something new, to hone your problem-solving skills and to challenge yourself in new ways
It was interesting to observe the way members sought clarification from the research team. The community sampled some of the edgy infographic jobs done by Patrick Munyi, brilliant BoP project done by Angela Crandall and the ICT hubs study conducted by Hilda Moraa.
At the end of it all, the research team lived up to its reputation.
