Figure/Ground interviews, both written and on YouTube, can be used by college instructors for curriculum development, faculty development, and/or assignment development. Students could be directed to them for vast amounts of information. Within MERLOT there are over 50 video clips from this one site. Those individual clips are not reviewed, but the main site will be. To search for the videos type in Figure/Ground in the search slot.
