NSF/NIH Research Integrity Training Seminar to be held on October 25

Tags: deans updates, funding, lectures and talks, moje

Please plan to attend the next installment of the School of Education’s Research Integrity Training Seminar series on Friday, October 25, 2013, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Whitney Room (room 1315). Please note that this session is a repeat of Module Three (maintaining integrity in data analysis) and only those NSF- or NIH-funded graduate student researchers or postdoctoral fellows who have not completed Module Three will need to attend.

During this session, Elizabeth Moje will walk participants through the different considerations of research integrity at each stage of a research grant, focusing on: (a) establishing protocols for integrity in data collection; (b) maintaining data security during the analysis process; (c) writing reports of findings that maintain the overall integrity of the project and data corpus; and (d) releasing data for public use in ways that safeguard the data integrity and maintain participant anonymity.

The SOE’s Research Integrity Training series is offered in response to a mandate from the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. All NSF- and NIH-funded graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are required to complete eight hours of face-to-face research integrity training (in addition to completing the PEERS training required of all study team members). If you are an NSF- or NIH-funded graduate student researcher or postdoctoral fellow, please bring your M-card to register your attendance at the session. If you plan to attend, RSVP to Angie Underdahl by Friday, October 18.

The SOE will offer five sessions per year (two in the fall, two in the winter, and one in the spring/summer). GSRAs and fellows have two years to complete their training and can take seminars in any sequence, but must take one of each of the four modules. Modules will be repeated each year. The next session (Module 4) will be offered on Friday, November 22, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Elizabeth Birr Moje is George Herbert Mead Collegiate Professor of Education and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor; Dean of the School of Education
