Research skills are a valued commodity by industry and university administrators. Despite the importance placed on these skills students typically dislike taking research method courses where these skills are learned. However, training in research skills does not necessarily have to be confined to these courses. In this study participants at a Cracker Barrel session (a series of short discussion sessions) discussed the issue of teaching research skills in non-research methods courses. Specific classroom strategies were identified along with issues related to the concept of research and the development of a research ethos among students and faculty.
