We are offering a hands-on, 1 credit graduate-level course focused on human study research design and data management planning.

If you or your students are interested in learning about research study design using Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) open source software, this is the course for you! 

Learn about example human studies that have used REDCap and the resources now available at OSU to use it!  You will also have hands on experience to learn: setting up a data collection & management plan in a REDCap test environment; designing a data collection form aligned with your study design; developing ways to administer a web-based survey to collect data; monitoring and tracking data received; conducting data entry processes for off-line data forms, using the REDCap library of tested data forms, and more.

New Short Course:

H599/699 Advanced Research Methods Using Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) Software,

Fall 2023 (CRN #19962/19025; Section 121)

Credit Hours: 1 units

Room: Waldo Hall 456 and via Zoom

Schedule: Tuesdays, 12-1:20pm

Course Instructor: Denise M. Hynes, PhD, RN (COH & CQLS)

Assisted by: Matthew Peterson, MS & Joseph Spring (CQLS)

The new short course will cover study design aspects most relevant to data planning and management in human subjects research.

A key focus is on how REDCap may support data management planning for specific study designs that require collecting data from or about individuals.

Highlights of key REDCap features that supported specific study designs will also be presented. There will be a hands-on ‘build a research project” session and access to a REDCAP server for your own learning. Recorded webinars, and on-line tutorials will also provide context for each session.

We have lots of training materials and examples to help you!

Short course is especially useful if you plan to use REDCap and would like assistance with getting set up for an upcoming research study!
