Course and Small Group Presentations

The IRB Education and Outreach Program staff deliver presentations on a variety of research-related topics:  

  • When and why IRB approval is required
  • How to ask whether IRB approval is necessary using the Human Subjects Research Determination (HSRD)
  • What to expect from the IRB review process
  • Ethical conduct of human subjects research
  • Requirements for course-related student projects
  • Resources available for all researchers

Each semester we contact the instructors of research-oriented courses to offer a presentation for their students. We consult with course instructors to create presentations that meet the needs of the students. These presentations are especially useful for undergraduate honors seminars, research methods courses, responsible conduct of research courses and graduate or professional student seminars. 

Contact the IRB Education & Outreach Program to schedule a classroom presentation.
