How is the LTI affected by the research study?
This LTI is presented as part of a funded research contract from the National Institute of Mental Health. The research study is designed to identify the most effective way to provide women and persons of color with the information and training they need to achieve high-level academic research and executive leadership positions. Therefore, 12 of the participants from the in-person training will only receive in-person training, 12 of the participants will receive both in-person and on-line training, and an additional 20 participants will not attend the in-person training but will receive on-line training.
Participants are asked to:
- Agree to be randomly assigned to one of the three training conditions (in-person, in-person and on-line, or on-line)
- Complete an on-line career progress questionnaire at three time points over a 1-year time period
- Complete knowledge/skill questionnaires related to the presentations at three time points over a 1-year time period
- Complete satisfaction questionnaires following each presentation
- Complete a website evaluation (if assigned to one of the two
conditions that receive on-line training)
In exchange for your time you will receive a $100 honorarium after completing the final questionnaire.
If invited to attend the LTI, what will my out-of-pocket expenses be?
The LTI will pay for your travel and hotel room. Most meals will be included as part of the LTI activities.
What is a breakout session?Because the funding and training needs of early career researchers differ from those of mid-career researchers, the LTI makes use of a split session design for some topics. Breakout sessions allow participants at similar career levels to engage in sessions tailored to meet the needs of their particular career stage.
