INL Lab Meeting February 1, 2011 *If you missed this Tuesday meeting please make sure that carefully read this power point presentation.
Agenda Attendance sheet Recruitment Weekly reports Professionalism and professional growth & ethics = main topic
Recruitment – Herculean efforts must continue – Frequent prompts by DG, Erin, your coordinator and other INL members – Keep matchbooks in purse—pockets – Weekly reports– be specific Copy Erin, DG, Norka, & your coordinator Add your picture to weekly reports!
DEFAULT COMMUNICATION WHISPER– your normal volume-speaking will likely distract others in the lab No laughing, joking, in lab– participants may think that you are laughing about them or are off task (which you probably are). Professional clothing– preference is to dress up for the lab, never come to lab with inappropriate clothing this includes work out attire, clothes with rips or holes, stained or tattered clothing or anything to short or revealing. SHUT THE DOOR QUIETLY– vibrations and noise moves through lab walls and disrupts attention and changes brain waves!
NIDA-5 Great Progress, but still behind We are behind in planned enrollment Need to total and heroic focus on recruitment for remainder of the semester I said we needed to enroll 12 new participants by end of last semester and got 16! Good work! Everyone needs to think about recruitment every day to keep this happening! –Everyone is responsible for recruiting and accurately reporting their recruiting efforts in their weekly reports
