The Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southern Denmark has developed a course in research training for residents, where traditional face-to-face teaching is mixed with computer-supported collaborative learning. The course focuses on the ability to ask research questions, retrieve information and appraise scientific papers. Initially, many course participants are reluctant to the course concept. Yet a majority of participants are very active online and give the course good evaluations. The course concept seems well-suited to "scaffold" participants' acquisition of research methodology competences.
