We are pleased to report that Rice's IRB has recently approved an umbrella IRB for ongoing pedagogical research at Rice. The Center for Teaching Excellence will be leading the research program, and anyone doing teaching-related research can join our protocol.
It is our hope that this will streamline the process for pedagogical research projects considerably, and we believe that this program will not only be of great benefit to our students, but it will also enhance Rice’s visibility nationally with respect to teaching and learning initiatives.
We invite those who want to join our umbrella IRB, or simply learn more about the process, to attend one of two workshops on either August 23rd or August 24th. Both will be held in Herring 129 from 12:00-1:00PM.
