Scholarly Skills Webinar: Navigating the Ethics Approval Journey in Graduate Studies – Balancing the seriousness with the opportunities

The Faculty of Graduate Studies will be hosting a series entitled Scholarly Skills. Join us for our next workshop!  

In this, the next installment of the Dean’s Scholarly Skills Brown Bag Workshop Series,  Associate Dean, Academic and National Girls/Women’s health researcher Dr. Cheryl van Daalen-Smith will lead discussion regarding what grad students need to understand and do as they approach this important graduate studies milestone. Key aspects of the Research Ethics Protocol Form for Graduate Student Theses or Dissertations, found here,  will be demystified with a particular emphasis on working with human participants. From understanding risk assessment, the outlining of goals, objectives, participant criteria and recruitment, proposed methodologies and data analysis, come and gain valuable information about how walking through your ethics application helps to tighten and clarify your proposed area of inquiry in ways that will set you up for success!

Dr. van Daalen-Smith will be joined by the Senior Manager and Policy Advisor of the Office of Research Ethics, Alison Mrakus-Collins who will answer participant questions while providing guidance to avoid the pitfalls leading to delays in ethics approvals. Participants are invited to access the form, with the link provided above, so you can understand what is required and walk through items together with us as you listen.
