Research Ethics for Undergraduate Research Programs Webinar

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 (33 weeks ago)

Julio Turrens (Division Director, At Large) and Representatives of the National Center for Professional and Research Ethics (NCPRE) will Discuss Research Ethics Instruction for Undergraduate Researchers. In the last decade, the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health have mandated instruction in the ethical and responsible conduct of research for all students supported on NSF research grants, including NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site programs. The federal agency mandates have led to creation of research integrity training programs of varying quality and impact on campuses. Academic institutional investments in ethics training have dramatically increased. This webinar will review evidence-based best practices in ethics education, and provide a forum of discussion as to how active learning techniques can be incorporated into undergraduate research ethics instruction.
