Research is One Big Mystery: Examining Research Through Nancy Drew's Magnifying Glass

Click on the video above to watch a narrated version of my Pecha Kucha presentation.  Pecha Kucha is a presentation format of 20 slides with 20 seconds of narration per slide and the slide deck auto-advances during the live presentation.  It is difficult to cite references when speaking in this format.  This Pecha Kucha presentation is based on a paper of the same title that I have written, and here is the reference list for the paper.
