Video Modules

Video modules serve as an educational tool to enhance best practices in conducting rigorous and reproducible research. Here we feature modules aimed at scholars at all stages of their careers and others involved in the research enterprise. Additional modules will be added as they become available.

Rigor and Reproducibility
The following four modules on rigor and reproducibility in conducting research covers topics, such as bias, blinding, sample size, and exclusion criteria. Each 2-5 minute video is supplemented with starting points, lead-in questions, and follow-up questions for a robust discussion. The modules are for the stimulation of discussion and can serve as a foundation for further education and training.
