  • Intellectual Piecework: Article from the Chronicle of Higher Education on the ethical dilemmas in online data collection platforms

    • Improvised Exemptions: This video features Joe Konstan, PhD, Distinguished McKnight Professor and Distinguished University Teaching Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, giving a plenary speech at an OHRP sponsored RCF in Cincinnati, Ohio. He discusses the distinctive challenges that exempt studies present for IRBs. Some areas of research need rapid review, and standard IRB policies are often silent when faced with changes in an exempt study and deciding when they rise to the level of review. Looking at exempt research from the PI perspective, he uses examples to draw lessons on how PIs and IRBs might better collaborate on ensuring compliance and safety in exempt research. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT9zIRGZGQ8
