Just an Hour video series
The Just an Hour: Engaging with Ideas is an open-forum that meets most Fridays from noon to 1 pm over Zoom. Hosted by Associate Deans Betty Gee and Punya Mishra, each session is an opportunity for faculty and doctoral students to connect with each other around ideas, college initiatives and more. Topics change week-to-week with different faculty, doctoral students and staff leading the conversation. This page is an archive of the sessions and will be updated on a regular basis with a recording of the most recent session.

IRB for education research
Before beginning any type of research with human subjects, it is necessary to have your study reviewed by the ASU institutional review board (IRB). IRB is essential to protect the rights of research subjects, the researcher and institution. The recording below features Debra Murphy from ASU’s Knowledge Enterprise Development discussing the IRB process with specific scenarios and recommendations for conducting education specific research followed by personal accounts of how to build relationships with school partners. Recommendations include:
- Connect with someone in MLFTC first to learn about existing school partnerships, as they may know of specific schools or districts in need of your research expertise.
- Take time to build the relationship before addressing your research interests.
- Cocrete research plans with the district to understand their needs and work to blend in your research interests.
- Don't overpromise what you will be able to provide; it is better to under-promise and deliver more benefit to the schools than to not be able to fulfill their expectations.
- Be open to traveling across the Valley and state. There are many wonderful schools interested and deserving of academic resources that may be provided via your research.
