A couple of people in the class have had difficulty getting signed into RISE in order to complete the ethics tutorial.
If you are experiencing difficulty accessing the UBC RISE system go to this Canada Tri-Council web site: http://tcps2core.ca/welcome
Create an account and complete the TCPS 2 Core Tutorial (Course on Research Ethics). This is the same tutorial as the one accessed via RISE. And you will receive the same certificate.
Please email me a copy of your certificate once you have completed the tutorial.
Here is the “Types of Research” powerpoint from last class:
On January 14 class will be held in Scarfe 1006 (Mac OS X lab) where we will have a workshop on library research (e.g., using library databases to locate research reports on the topic you will be investigating this term).
