The Graduate Student Working Group for Foreign Language Research and Teaching (FLRT) will be hosting a workshop on IRB with an emphasis on classroom-based research on Monday, October 2nd, 4 – 5:30 pm at Research Commons, 18th Avenue Library (3rd floor). The workshop will be lead by Joni Barnard (ORRP) and me and it will address such topics as teacher/school involvement in recruitment, parental permission, classroom video, BuckIRB, and answering questions in BuckIRB to help IRB reviewers understand and approve the application. The workshop will be helpful for students who are new to IRB and for students who would like to learn more about the IRB process and system.
A great resource for students interested in video-based research on social interaction is now available at Learning How to Look & Listen. This website brings together resources from a conference supported by the Spencer Foundation at Arizona State University where an interdisciplinary group of older and younger scholars gathered to document and illustrate the basic patterns of visual and auditory attention that are employed by researchers who use video to study social interaction. Two scholars who trained me, Chuck Goodwin and Barbara Rogoff, are part this fabulous group.
The new Buckeye Language Network website went live this summer. I have the honor of being the first faculty member to be in the BLN Spotlight.
