At some level of academia, what is required of one is practical knowledge. This means that as you advance up the academic ladder, you must endeavor to acquire practical skills necessary for field study. For instance, at college level, there will come a time when you will be assigned some research work and it will be upon you to come up with a topic, pick up a study area and set out on a mission to gather information relevant to that which you want to prove and write on. With this in mind, one of the key skills you must also cultivate is how to write well. There is no way you can craft a good academic paper if you don’t have the requisite creative writing skills. This is important because at the end of it all, all you will have gathered out there need to be put down in a format that readers and in which case supervisors and any other interested party will be able to follow and understand.
There is also the issue of topic on which you want to base your research. A lot of times, this is where most learners go wrong. Choosing a topic is never an easy thing because at the very least, it must meet such characteristic as measurable, researchable and precision. Conducting a study on a topic that is wide or general is not always easy because at the end of the day, your must be specific in findings and what you want them to solve. If you have been assigned a topic relating to nutrition, you must really dig deep to come up with something meaningful. In this post, we look at some ideas relating to nutrition to get you started.
