Toronto and ''research''

> How is participating in a professional presentation considered research?

In my gut, I think Bob is likely to use the Toronto APA experiences as part of what he may eventually write up for scholarly publication about Babble, even if the workshop itself is not "research". Bob is likely eventually to report, for example, that X-many Babblers came and to summarize what some said. How could he NOT report about that??

So I think the workshops could, technically, fall inside Bob's overall cyber-therapy / Babble research work. I should quickly add that I think that's fine.

I think all of the applicable requirements of informed consent can be met just by discussing potential pitfalls and alternatives, like we've started. There's an "Informed Consent Checklist" here:

We can put together a list like...
   •You may run into your former pdoc (Yoiks!) or others who may recognize you.
   •Questions from the attendees will probably be friendly but there's a risk that some may feel nonsupportive.
   •Dr Bob may later write about the workshop.
   •Attendees may later write about what you say.
   •There is an extremely low risk that someone hostile to Babble may show up and try to embarrass presenters.
   •You can also meet Dr Bob & other Babblers in Toronto without being in the workshop.
   • ?

Even if we disagree that workshop participation could ever fall under "Human Subjects Research", we can all agree that such a list is possible & good.
