The Research Process: Instructional Design Video Series
The purpose of this video suite is to introduce learners to central conceptual and critical thinking elements of the research process that are often tacitly assumed to be part of students’ background knowledge but not always explicitly taught. The series attempts to take a learner-centered approach, by addressing live questions students face during the research process, and aims to provide direct interventions on these skills. The videos, wherever possible, are informed by research on the writing process, evidence-based learning theory, and instructional design practices in order to make this tacit knowledge explicit for learners and instructors. The videos are designed to be used either directly by students or by classroom instructors.
