Earlier this month I wrote about a new collection of practice datasets optimized for use in classroom exercises or in exam papers: SAGE Research Methods Datasets. I'm very pleased to announce that SFU researchers now have access to a companion resource: Sage Research Methods Video!
Key practical skills such as project management, writing for publication, presenting work, and building networks are also presented in explanatory videos.
Need some specific examples? Here are a few of the many multimedia wonders in Sage Research Methods Video:
- Writing Articles for the Media: How the Conversation Works with Academics (a key skill for those seeking to increase community engagement and impact!)
- Core Skills for New Researchers: Being an Effective Project Manager
- Researching Diffusion of Innovations Using a Mixed Methods Design
- An Introduction to Descriptive & Inferential Statistics
- Best Practices for Presenting your Research
- An Introduction to Structural Equation Modeling for Survey Researchers
- Correlation and Causation: Tyler Vigen's Spurious Correlations
- 3 Ways to Implement Transparent Research Practices
- Academic Writing: How to Get Started and Keep Going
Questions? Contact me...
P.S.: This new streaming video resource and the research datasets one announced a few weeks ago are both new components in our broader Sage Research Methods Online database -- now you have text, video, and data samples all together in one powerful resource designed to help you become a more effective researcher!
