Pack a lunch for research series on university campus All students and faculty are encouraged to pack a lunch and attend the upcoming Brown Bag Series about research on Nov. 18 and Dec. 6.
Each month a different speaker will discuss relevant issues as they pertain to research, followed by questions and open discussion. These sessions help improve research and teach new tools and ways to think about research and they are also open to the public.
All sessions are held at the Coyote Student Center, Hoy B at 12:05 p.m. to 12:55 p.m.
The Brown Bag Series was created in response to the recent push toward research by the Board of Regents and by The University of South Dakota's desire to make the university the premier research institution in the state. The first Brown Bag sessions were held last year in November at the School of Education. The sessions are now open to the entire school this fall.
Presenters for the current sessions come from various departments throughout the university. There are plans in the future to invite presenters from the surrounding communities and other universities.
The topic for discussion on Nov. 18 is "Forum on Human Subjects Research." The speaker for this series is Lisa Korcuska, associate director, research compliance and Institutional Research Bureau director. On Dec. 6, Marcy Reisetter, an expert in counseling and psychology in education, will discuss "Principles of Qualitative Research."
The first 20 to 30 minutes of the Brown Bag sessions will be a talk/discussion about relevant issues.�The talk is then followed by open dialogue and communication of concerns from individuals in the audience.�Students and faculty can discuss their concerns about design, implementation, analysis, and interpretation of their own research with others who could provide new insight.
