CARMA Video Library Access
Archived versions of all Live Webcast Lectures and other key events since 2004 are available within the CARMA Video Library. The Video Library currently contains over 200 recorded lectures from internationally recognized scholars on a variety of research methods (including qualitative and quantitative). We have improved the access and search process for the recordings and our Video Library which will result in a better viewing experience. All faculty and students from member universities will have on-demand individual access to all of these recorded lectures at any time from any location. These lectures and related materials can serve as a resource for authors, reviewers, and editors seeking guidance on basic and advanced research methods design and analysis questions. They also can be used as a teaching resource, adding variety to the in-class experience with group viewing and/or as assigned for individual access outside of class, thus enriching the learning experience. Instructors find our videos valuable as they provide insight into current issues in research methods and give students an opportunity to hear from experts in the field of research methods. The recordings enhance knowledge and application of research methods and by providing a basis of discussion and debate.
