CapU REB Approval of Minimal Risk, Course-based Student Research Involving Human Participants
CapU REB approval is required for research involving human participants conducted under the auspices of CapU, including course-based student research intended primarily for pedagogical purposes.
This webpage describes the process for CapU faculty to receive REB approval of minimal risk research involving human participants conducted by students under their supervision as a requirement of course completion.
Once approved, an REB Protocol for Course-based Student Research documents the scope of projects, participant populations, and methods students may undertake with REB approval as part of a CapU course under the supervision of the course instructor.
An advantage of an REB Protocol for Course-based Student Research is that it enables REB approval student research activities within a course on an annual basis, rather than REB review of each student research project individually. Once approved by the REB, course instructors may apply to renew an approved REB Protocol for Course-based Student Research on an annual basis.
