GPS: Present Your Research

. In this one-day workshop, theory is introduced in short bursts, and participants spend the majority of time practising their presentation skills and receiving onsite feedback. The focus on extensive practice and feedback is what makes the program meaningful, and is what makes the learning stick.

GPS/Office of Research Ethics Workshop

This workshop, which is jointly offered by GPS and the Office of Research Ethics (ORE), is designed to introduce graduate students to ethical issues surrounding research involving human participants, relevant to the UBC Behavioural Research Ethics Board. It includes an overview of key principles, policies and controversies in research ethics. A step-by-step guide to the application form and process will also be provided and breakout sessions will give participants the opportunity to consider ethical issues arising in their own research projects and how to address these issues in their application for behavioural research ethics review and in the conduct of their research. A separate workshop for research relevant to the UBC Clinical Research Ethics Board will be offered at a later date.
