Calling All Supervisors: Achieving Success in Human Research Ethics when working with Student Researchers

Katelyn Harris, Western Research
Monday, June 7, 1–2 p.m.

 Are you supervising students in research involving human participants (incl. their data and/or biological material) this year? Are you aware of the current policies and procedures regarding your research-ethics-related supervisory responsibilities? Whether you’re new to this type of supervision, or this session would be merely a refresher, you are encouraged to join us. Together, let’s foster successful student research opportunities at Western. If you have any questions that you would like addressed in the session, please email ethics@uwo.ca with subject line, “USRI Faculty Workshop” by June 1st or feel free to bring your questions to the seminar for the Q&A period.


The Supervisor’s Role in Promoting EDID Practices

Melanie Anne Atkins, Centre for Teaching and Learning  
Wednesday, June 16, 10–11:30 a.m.

How can faculty mentors implement principles of equity, diversity, inclusion, or decolonization into their supervision practices with diverse students? Join this session to (a) reflect on your own social identities and experiences in academia to decide how you want to take up this work, and (b) develop concrete strategies to use during current and future research activities, including research development, meetings, and output.

If you don’t automatically receive the zoom links, please try to register again. The enthusiasm shown by USRI students has been giving the MS Power Automate email server a workout over the past couple of weeks. Also, a few supervisors have asked if their other students are able to register for the UG webinars, and the answer is yes. If someone on your research team is interested in any of the offerings, they are more than welcome to participate.
