    January 28, 2021 – Industry Sponsored Research: Building Partnerships with Industry

    University-Industry (U-I) research partnerships can produce transformative solutions to areas and sectors that face unique challenges. The U-I interface is a truly unique dynamic as each side brings strengths that create collaborations that are greater than the sum of its parts.

    Industry has the funding for research and the experience in product/service development and universities provide deep levels of scientific research. However, both universities and industry also have diverse goals and objectives that can make partnering a challenging prospects. Attendees of this session will have better clarity of perspectives from both sides and learn some of the tools and mechanisms to lay the groundwork for potentially long-term – and mutually beneficial – relationships.

    Presenter – Chase Kasper, CURF Director of Business Development
    Target audience – Faculty, staff, postdocs and students
    Location – via Zoom; 12pm-1pm

    February 24, 2021 – Human Subjects Research Using Online Platforms

    Online platforms like Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) are a powerful source for recruiting human research subjects. Research shows that when used correctly, these platforms can provide a large, high quality sample in a short amount of time at a fraction of the cost of traditional recruiting services. However, effectively using these platforms requires carefully navigating around a number of pitfalls that may jeopardize quality and/or ethical standards. In this virtual RCR brownbag talk, Dr. Kowalski and Dr. Knijnenburg will highlight these pitfalls in a best-practices rundown of the most popular online platforms, followed by a Q&A session to address questions regarding the use of online platforms for your particular research needs.

    Presenters – Robin Kowalski and Bart Knijnenburg
    Target audience – Faculty, staff, postdocs and students

    April 8 2021 – Centering Equity in Research Collaborations

    Collaborative research teams are a desirable part of academic scientific research. Building collaborations combines different skillsets, strengths, and perspectives, enriching the research beyond what an individual researcher can accomplish.  Incorporating equity, diversity, and inclusion will only build stronger research teams.  This workshop will (1) introduce and expand equity, diversity, and inclusion concepts, (2) deepen participants capacity to critically analyze research collaborations, and (3) apply DEI concepts to research team case studies.

    Presenters – Natasha Croom, Associate Professor of Higher Education and Student Affairs & Special Advisor to the Dean for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence and Rachel Wagner, Associate Professor of Education and Organizational Leadership Development
    Target audience – Faculty, staff, postdocs and students
