Based on the research data, five different types of resources were developed: ten short video clips with supporting transcripts; 17 written scenarios with key ideas and suggested discussion questions; three documents outlining strategies; a checklist to determine departmental and faculty readiness; and an annotated bibliography with over 100 entries. Resources may be found on the project website and are freely available for use by both candidates and supervisors.
