Getting started in teaching research can be a daunting task. Developing a sound research plan and successful Institutional Review Board, or IRB, protocol are two of the first steps. Being aware of potential sticking points with this process can help you refine your teaching research ideas.

Join the Biggio Center for a unique opportunity to interface with Bernie Olin, chair of Auburn’s IRB.

Faculty interested in designing IRB projects related to teaching-as-research, or TAR, or the scholarship of teaching and learning will be introduced to TAR using a step-by-step guide to facilitate the design of meaningful and IRB-compliant projects; learn about the IRB process from Bernie Olin; learn about new funding opportunities and other resources to help facilitate your research and its dissemination; and brainstorm TAR projects in collaboration with Biggio Center facilitators, colleagues and an IRB representative.

The “IRBs with Relative Ease” workshop will be held Thursday, Oct. 27, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the 118 Sciences Center Classroom. Registration is available online
