THE ANALYSIS

 The authors share the transition from idea, concept, and basic research to “proof-of-concept” and research evidence. Traditional academic, peer-reviewed research resides in academic journals that may not impact the mainstream public because that is not the intended audience of the findings. We are trying to double dip with our Mentorship Competency Series as Articles 1, 3 and 5 follow more of the traditional approach, while 2, 4, and 6 aim to engage the court of public opinion and mainstream integration.

 INSTRUCTION MANUAL

Once again, the authors confirmed that we cannot rely on novelty and trending. We need a pedagogy-based foundation to fit the digital literacy and instructor competencies of the 21st-century learning arenas. To push a new infrastructure and update our classrooms, we need a blueprint of the WHY before the HOW, which has been our goal in this entire series. This final article is the simplified instruction manual previewing the application of the methodology and a glimpse of things to come.
