IRB?
 NOT needed unless you plan to share publicly
 But a good idea!
 Even then, NOT needed for proposal

publish
 Can be Exempt (short form!) if using “normal educational
practices”– those from LibGuide

Capstone courses and projects
Changing student mindset—intelligence is not
set, but can improve
Ideas based on IUSB data . . .
