Foundations of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) (Student) - 2/25/2022



Full course description

LIVE SESSION: Friday, February 25, 2022 @3:00pm - 4:00pm, Zoom. THIS SESSION IS FOR STUDENTS ONLY.

Class Description: Currently, it is crucial for universities that use federal funds for research activities to provide training about the responsible conduct of research.  This class will provide information to increase your awareness about responsible conduct of research and research integrity.  We will identify resources for you on the UU campus, as well as from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and federal Office of Research Integrity to promote research integrity and the responsible conduct of research that you will be able to carry into your career. 


Objectives: At the conclusion of this class, you should be able to:

  • Characterize elements of responsible conduct of research (RCR)
  • Define research integrity
  • Describe areas of research misconduct and differentiate activities to promote responsible conduct of research (RCR) in your discipline
  • Articulate impact of research misconduct on science
  • Locate resources for you as a student

REd Synchronous classes are taught by subject matter experts, and provide both fundamental and advanced skills training in flipped classroom format. These classes are offered live (currently, via Zoom), wherein participants will attend and participate in a 1-hour presentation and will be held responsible for completing any required pre-class and/or post-class activities outside the classroom (these activities can include: readings, videos, etc.). Participants can expect to spend up to 1-hour with these activities. The total duration for these synchronous classes is approximately 2-hours.
