Research Proposals and Applications

Teaching & Learning offers the following consultation and support services to help get you started with the research process:

  • Develop your research question
  • Select a research study design
  • Revise your ethics review application
  • Locate relevant research articles and key terms

Research Ethics Application

If you are contemplating a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project or research that involves human beings, you may need to complete a research ethics application submitted for the Research Ethics Board (REB). Seeking ethics approval is important; many publications ask for verification of ethics approval within the manuscript body. The application is also helpful in planning the research approach.

ARECCI Ethics Sreen Tool Score

All research ethics applications must also include an ARECCI Ethics Screen Tool score which can be saved and emailed to the REB.
