This video provides a quick introduction to an important topic. I like how it helps re-frame research as an iterative process, and also presents an alternative to the common view that there may be one perfect source out there somewhere. The video would likely provide an effective set-up for subsequent instruction that digs into the strategies needed for an iterative and multifaceted research process.
