What is an IRB, and why is it important for extreme events research? If you are interested in learning more, please watch this recording of a brief 30-minute demonstration webinar. The presenters provided a demonstration of the newly released CONVERGE Institutional Review Board (IRB) Procedures and Extreme Events Research Training Module.
This recorded session should be of interest to you if you are an educator, student, researcher, practitioner, or other professional hoping to learn more about this free, online resource. The webinar offered an overview of the broader vision for the CONVERGE Training Modules, as well as educated hazards and disaster researchers on the purpose and process of the IRB in extreme events research. In addition, it showed how the module functions and the resources associated with it. This session also highlighted the new CONVERGE Training Module Assignment Bank for educators.
The IRB Procedures and Extreme Events Research Training Module—developed with support from the National Science Foundation—is available via the CONVERGE website. We hope you will access it.
