Traditional methods such as exams, projects and labs can assess student's understanding of concepts in a digital logic design course. However, there is still a need for innovative instructional pedagogy, so that the material presented is more coherent and learning outcomes are improved. The goal of this work is to implement a student research project that contributes to rapid feedback and a well constructed body of knowledge, thus improving learning outcomes. The project requires students to work in teams and prepare a 10-page research paper and an oral presentation on a topic on digital logic design. We also discuss some of the results that we have gathered in the last 3 years of teaching the digital logic design course
