Abstract

Abstract: This paper discusses Courseware for Observational Research (COR), an interactive multimedia program designed to teach methods of observational research from the initial phase of hypothesis generation through the final stage of data analysis and interpretation. The program uses video with interactive coding activities, a case study, and a laboratory component to teach students the concepts and gradually provide less and less assistance until they are applying the research methods on their own. The case study, in particular, helps students to apply their learning in a realistic setting. Initial evaluations of students using the software have been positive.
