Organized by AAAS Program on Scientific Responsibility, Human Rights and Law

Certain recipients of grant funds from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF) are required to receive instruction in the ethical and responsible conduct of research (RCR). This workshop is designed for anyone, especially researchers and research administrators, who is interested in learning the basics of teaching research ethics or improving or refreshing their RCR teaching skills.

The workshop will begin with an overview of the scope of RCR, emphasizing the value of this instruction as an important component of professional development. The workshop will include evidence-based approaches to designing RCR instruction; resources for core content; demonstrations of interactive teaching techniques on RCR topics such as authorship, collaborative research, and data sharing; and methods for assessing course objectives. All attendees will be actively involved in the workshop.

Participants are encouraged to bring a Wi-Fi capable laptop or tablet computer; one of the exercises will require team searches for resources on a specific topic.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
