Each one-hour Introductory Webcast Lecture is accompanied by its Powerpoint slides, and also an on-line assessment is available for those participating in CARMA’s Research Methods and Education Program. Presenters include nationally recognized scholars, many of whom are former editors and editorial board members as well as research methods award winners. Examples of topics in the Introductory Webcast Lectures include inductive research, hypothesis testing, survey research and scale development, regression analysis, multi-level methods, ethnography, publishing qualitative research, and meta-analysis.
