Responsible Conduct of Research Training for New NICHD Postdocs
“Discussion of Ethical Research Practices: Making Good Choices”
This mandatory training is for all postdocs who started after January 1, 2018.
An interactive session that promotes both self-directed and team-based learning required for all new postdoctoral fellows, through the Office of Education. Led by the Office of Education, this session will include case studies and reading assignments related to research integrity and discussions on ways to reduce risk factors.
The session will begin with a brief discussion on pre-assigned reading materials, followed by small-group, team-based learning exercises involving complex cases that promote discussions of either fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, mentoring expectations, and/or trainee responsibilities. The workshop will include good practices of data management and presentation, including lab notebook management—both physical and electronic. For additional details and to register, contact Dr. Erin Walsh at email@example.com.
