This workshop will help participants become acquainted with key ethical issues involved in research and scholarship. It will include presentations and interactive discussion on topics related to research ethics in the U.S. as compared to other countries. We will explore how differences in perceptions of ethical practice and integrity can create misunderstanding and confusion among scholars and students. The session will assist international students in identifying their own cultural norms and expectations, finding resources that they can use to ensure they are adhering to U.S. regulatory and normative requirements, and developing more confidence in navigating any gaps between the two. The session will help to satisfy the requirements for research ethics training for students employed on NSF and NIH projects. This session targets graduate and undergraduate students, but all are welcome to attend. Registration is required.
