The National Institute of Health has defined responsible conduct of research as the practice of investigation with integrity, and one that involves the awareness and application of established professional norms and ethical principles in the performance of all activities related to research.
Responsible conduct in research is based on many of the same human values that apply in / to daily life; honesty, fairness, objectivity, openness, trustworthiness and respect for others (Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy, National Academy of Science, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, 2009).
These values have special implication in the context of research, openness in sharing of research materials, fairness in reviewing grant proposals, honesty in publication, and respect for colleagues and students. In this workshop, basic concept on responsible conduct of research will be shared using active learning pedagogy.
In this workshop, each and every participant will have opportunities to share ideas with all other participants. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to well appreciate the value of conducting science responsibly and also learn how to share and teach the topics to other students.
