ACS Workshop on Teaching Research Ethics

On June 20-21, 2013, Centre College, together with Davidson College and Trinity University, will host a workshop about preparing effective materials to train undergraduate students in the responsible conduct of research (RCR) and research ethics.

Participants will leave the workshop with learning activities to implement in their own classes as well as guidelines and inspiration for generating additional materials.

Thanks to a grant from the Associated Colleges of the South, this workshop will be free to attendees from ACS member institutions. Travel reimbursement of up to $400 is available for the first twelve participants who register to attend.  

Expressions of interest are due to KatieAnn Skogsberg by April 30.

Responsible research, according to Dr. Suess

Janet D. Stemwedel of San José State University takes a poetic approach to the responsible conduct of research in her Scientific American blog.

Look at the data!
Just look at it NOW!
I got it to support our ideas
somehow.
I can match RNA
and DNA too
I can even make
data from proteins come through!

We’ll publish and publish
we’ll write a grant, maybe three!
That’s just how easy faking data can be!
