Bringing the IRB into the Classroom: Promoting Research and Professional Socialization in Undergraduate Education
Olszewski, Todd M.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v30 n3 p161-177 2019
Many U.S. colleges and universities have emphasized the value of student-driven undergraduate research as one way to augment the traditional classroom experience. For undergraduate students, human subjects-based research, which typically requires review by an institutional review board (IRB), can have a particularly profound impact on their learning experience and professional socialization. The author proposes how instructors can re-envision and utilize the IRB application process as a teaching tool to promote ethical and analytical thinking among undergraduate researchers.
