From page 35...
... PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIVERSITY In the first presentation, Katie Bode-Lang noted that Penn State has required RCR education for all graduate students since 2009, with each graduate program determining how to meet that RCR requirement. This approach has let to great variance among the RCR programs -- some are one-time workshops, while others have semester-long class -- as well as concerns about the quality of these programs, particularly since there have been no assessments for efficacy.
From page 36...
... students, RCR workshops offered twice each semester on topics common to all disciplines, and an annual RCR lecture series. There is also a graduate seminar on ethics in research and scholarship, an undergraduate seminar on fundamentals of research integrity, and an ongoing research study of incoming graduate assistants' knowledge of RCR topics.
From page 37...
... Ideas for future work included OEC facilitating or organizing international collaborations to establish a code of ethics and standards for ethical conduct and a community of practice that would first engage in a reflective process about RCR and eventually develop a transdisciplinary code and valid metrics of ethics for STEM disciplines. Another theme across groups was barriers, such as a lack of institutional support for delivering RCR training.
From page 38...
... The CITI program and other organizations offer online RCR training, but attendees thought while courses of this type are a good starting point, institutions of higher education cannot rely on them alone but rather offer more substantive courses that include in-person discussions. However, attendees noted potential barriers at the institutional level against moving to a more complex, though not necessarily more expensive, model of delivering effective RCR training.
From page 39...
... CREATIVE APPROACHES TO RCR 39 stress inclusion in designing RCR programs, because, as noted by Sonia Chawla, "how can we do ethical research if we are not inclusive."
