Courses

IDPT 500S Responsible Conduct of Research 2.0 Credits

This two credit course is offered twice a year, one evening a week. It is presented using lecture, discussion and problem-based curriculum approaches, with associated required readings in texts. Some topics additionally require web-based exercises and quizzes. Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty discuss current issues of scientific integrity that all scientists encounter in their research. Solutions to hypothetical and real research challenges and ethical dilemmas are discussed and debated by trainees and faculty. Course sessions and discussions are led by a team of faculty leaders, including department head, deans and provosts. Grades are based on quizzes, class participation, web-based exercises, a term paper and a PowerPoint presentation.
