GERESE--A Faculty Workshop

Module by: William Frey. E-mail the author

Based on: EAC Toolkit - Student Module Template by Jose A. Cruz-Cruz, William Frey

Summary: This module reports on a faculty workshop in research ethics held for the NSF grant, Graduate Education in Research Ethics for Scientists and Engineers. The workshop, held January 30, 2009, assessed the project's framework and its components for a program in research ethics for graduate students. It also raised the issue of whether and how research ethics oculd be institutionalized at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. This module is also being developed as a part of a project funded by the National Science Foundation, "Collaborative Development of Ethics Across the Curriculum Resources and Sharing of Best Practices," NSF-SES-0551779.

HOW TO EDIT:

Introduction

On January 30, 2009, a workshop was held to assess qualitatively the NSF-funded project GERESE, Graduate Education in Research Ethics for Scientists and Engineers. (NSF 0629377) This module has the umbrella presentation introducing the different activities, a presentation on the theoretical and historical background of research ethics, presentations used in two student workshops, General Awareness Workshop and Moral Deliberation Workshop. At this stage, this module exists as a resource participants can use to access these workshop materials. At a later stage, it will be expanded to provide a toolkit other institutions can use for developing their own assessment workshops.

What you need to know …

What is GERESE?

  • GERESE stands for Graduate Education in Research Ethics for Scientists and Engineers, an NSF-funded project in research ethic. An interdisciplinary team at UPRM is planning, testing and assessing a new framework for teaching Research Ethics which consists of the following components:
  • series of workshops for graduate students
  • separate activities for faculty development
  • mentoring opportunities for faculty / students
  • a new series of courses on Research Ethics
  • Its final objective is to foster and support ethical behavior and social commitment among researchers in Science and Engineering.
