Welcome to the Together/Apart: Share Your Faculty Story page. We are collecting thoughts related to our faculty community’s adjustments to teaching during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. To Share Your Faculty Story, answer the questions on this form.
We are also collecting materials related to educational changes brought about by COVID-19. Do you have a syllabus, lesson plan, assignment, or other similar document that you've adapted because of the pandemic, or designed in response to COVID-related factors? If you'd like to submit any documentation you've created, please go to our submit a digital item page (this will open a window in a new tab on your browser so that you can complete your faculty story submission here).
45 CFR 46.102(l)(1) deems activities such as these as not being research and thus not applicable to IRB approval. "For purposes of this part, the following activities are deemed not to be research: (1) Scholarly and journalistic activities (e.g., oral history, journalism, biography, literary criticism, legal research, and historical scholarship), including the collection and use of information, that focus directly on the specific individuals about whom the information is collected."
