Researchers need to get IRB approval for the use of human subjects if they plan to present findings on student learning beyond our own campus in presentations or publications.
Information, including policies, procedures, and how to get sample IRBs and can be found on the Human Subject and Research Policies and Procedures IRB webpage.
Here are resources from outside Duquesne. The general information they offer for framing SoTL work is helpful, but the institution-specific procedures will differ according to the institution. For these, be sure to use Duquesne guidelines.
