Research is like Cooking video

A couple of years ago I posted about a Powerpoint slidedeck I had been using in Information Literacy classes comparing the research process to cooking. With the help of some awesome colleagues, I updated the slides, did a voice-over, and turned it into a video called Research is Like Cooking.
Sometimes I use it in workshops, for a little break from me talking. This week, I’m sending it out as homework before the library workshop. I’m hoping the kids will spend the 5 minutes watching it before the workshop, so we have a common metaphor to use throughout the workshop.
I slapped a CC-BY license on it, so use it if you like it.

    Awesome video! I stumbled upon your “Research is Like Cooking” through Christine Alfano when she let me poke around in her class’ “doings” before I observed her class. Since I am just starting my 6th and 7th graders on a research project/paper assignment, I shared your insightful video with them. It resonated quite well. Thank you for sharing!

      I am so very happy that you and your students found the video helpful! Thanks for letting me know — your note made my day!
