    Ethical and Practical Issues in Global Human Research will explore complex issues in reviewing, conducting, and overseeing human research conducted globally. It will serve as a platform for speakers and workshop participants to exchange ethical issues and practical challenges encountered in their daily work, and discuss their experiences and approaches in resolving them. Upon completing this workshop, participants will be able to identify applicable regulations and guidelines governing global human research; apply equivalent protection concepts in reviewing such research; address common challenges; and be familiar with approaches to ensure compliance and improve performance for IRBs and/or ethics review committees.

    The purpose of the Tips and Tools for Effective Education and Training program is to coach IRB educators in the use of active-learning pedagogy and best practices for creating and delivering effective educational and training sessions. Often, IRB educators have very little time, or only a single opportunity, to share a large amount of information. Many of these IRB staff have little background or experience as educators or public speakers. During this course, participants will learn the most effective ways to organize and present content, incorporating active-learning skills that are effective for either large or small groups. They will learn how to effectively use PowerPoint and other presentation methods for the most efficient knowledge transfer while also encouraging active engagement with the material being presented. Breakout sessions will be conducted, in which activities effective for small groups will be discussed and demonstrated. Strategies for addressing typical challenges, such as individuals or groups who dominate discussions (or who are reluctant to participate), and ways to assess successful learning, will be addressed.
