Webinar: "Research Ethics for Undergraduate Research Programs"
The Council on Undergradute Research (CUR) is conducting a webinar on best practices in ethics education on Tuesday, September 17 from 2 to 3 p.m. in JSAC, Room 1011. Interpreters will be provided.
In the last decade, the National Science Foundation (NSF) 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.
CUR Director for the At-Large Division, Dr. Julio Turrens, a professor and associate dean at University of South Alabama, will be joined by experts at the National Center for Professional and Research Ethics at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. To help faculty and administrators provide instruction in research ethics, NSF supported the creation of Ethics CORE, the national online ethics resource center hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Hosted by the Office of the Associate Provost for Research/Dean of the Graduate School. Please contact Carlene.Thumann-Prezioso@gallaudet.edu if you need additional information.
