SAGE Research Methods

SAGE Research Methods is designed with teaching in mind. It allows the creation of custom resource lists of articles, reference materials, video tutorials or methods visualizations for embedding in the Learning Management environment like Quercus.

The landing page of SAGE Research Methods lets you get started on exploring either via anthropology resources, or by resource type:

SAGE research methods home

SAGE Research Methods does have videos that can be clipped or streamed, but its best part are resources for faculty.

Once you get to the SAGE Research homepage, you can watch this 2 minute video:

Below is the Faculty Resource page with tips for making video clips, and embedding research methods texts, real data or cases:

You can customize SAGE searches by discipline, so selecting Anthropology (or another discipline) may help you with finding either the qualitative, statistical or ethnographic research methods you may want students to explore, or the set of videos that interests you. The example below focuses on Psychology because it may has case studies that may also be useful in Forensic Science:

Criterion on Demand

This service delivers blockbuster commercial films, including well-known documentaries. Below is the information and login page alerting you to the fact that not all the films are available to UTL subscribers, some are not available remotely, and none are available on mobile devices. I strongly suggest to use this page to access the service as it will authenticate you:
