Education, Outreach, & Training
Classroom Outreach Requests
An OHR representative can visit your classroom and conduct an IRB process, human subjects research, or ethics workshop upon request. Please submit requests at least one month in advance, if able. This allows time to tailor the outreach to your specific needs. Please send requests to email@example.com, with the subject line "Classroom Outreach Request." Include your name, date and time requested, department name, and type of request. Arrangements can be made to visit all campuses. Evening (after 5:30PM) classroom sessions are hosted via WebEx.
OHR staff are available to visit your department or specific group to provide a presentation and/or assistance with IRB process, human subjects research, or ethics workshop. Please send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line “Department Outreach Request." Include your name, date, time, department and type of request. We will work with you to create a presentation or facilitate a discussion that best meets the needs of your group.
If you would like to discuss your project in more detail, or if you are new to research at GW, you may request a ½ hour appointment with OHR via phone or in person. This ensures that we have availability and dedicated time to work with you. Please send your request to email@example.com. Our office hours for appointments are Mondays 9AM-1PM and Wednesdays 12-3PM.
IRB Training Series
The IRB Training Series is OHR's educational offering for the GW research community and covers a range of topics related to the IRB review process, human subjects research, and the policies and federal regulations that guide GW human subjects research protections programs. We invite all GW researchers, faculty, staff, and students involved with or considering conducting human subjects research to attend the IRB Training Series as often as possible.
The upcoming IRB Training Series session topics are posted here. You will also find information regarding each IRB Training Series session posted as upcoming events on the OHR homepage and when following OHR on any of our social media platforms.
