The purpose of this presentation is to describe the process of developing a web-enhanced module related to the conduct and critique of research with racial and ethnic populations. The module consists of descriptive and instructional materials as well as short case studies that cover basic concepts, definitions and approaches for the conduct of culturally competent research. Guidelines for the Analysis and Critique (Porter and Villarruel, 1985 served as the organizing framework for the content. It is designed to be relevant to all programmatic levels - BSN to PHD. The module was developed using an existing web-based tool that provided an easy and flexible medium to create customized content. The program is also able to display learning material and provides a means to collect process and content evaluation data. The module was piloted with over 30 students and faculty from a midwestern university and southern university. A focus group was held to elicit feedback on module format, content, and potential classroom uses. Computer based feedback indicated that 100% of users found the module easy to navigate and use. Focus group participants reported confusion with some formatting, requested more case studies of exemplary and non-exemplary research projects, and expressed a desire for electronic access to referenced articles. These specific recommendations were incorporated in subsequent module revisions. This web-enhanced module is currently being used as supplementary learning activities in two doctoral courses. We anticipate these modules will be used in a variety of courses, including interdisciplinary courses. Lessons learned from the creation of the Cultural Competent Research module will be incorporated in the future development of other learning modules.
