Presentation Description

From expressions of frustration and procrastination of student researcher-writers, to demonstrations of researching and writing techniques offered by teachers, librarians and students themselves, the research project has a significant presence on YouTube. In this presentation, I offer examples of different representations for research-writing on YouTube, and suggest ways in which writing teachers and academic librarians can work with students to make sense of the different representations as well as alter this informal research tool into an alternative research-writing space.
