The teaching of research integrity in Europe - state of the art & ways to improve it | Take part in the survey launched by the INTEGRITY project
Posted by Sandra Rossi, INTEGRITY project on 12 Jul 2019
The kickoff meeting of the INTEGRITY project was held last February 2019, in the city of Utrecht. The consortium encompasses 11 European partners from nine countries, and intends to develop strategies and tools that make education for research integrity more effective
Led by the University of Utrecht, the project’s mission is to build knowledge and develop tools aimed at supporting high school teachers and university professors who are responsible for training related to scientific integrity and research ethics. The educational resources, which the project aims to develop, include a European standard on training for responsible conduct of research, SPOCs (small private online courses), podcasts, educational games, good-practice teaching modules, and a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course).
Under the leadership of the UZH Center of Ethics the project is now mapping the status quo of research integrity training across ten European countries, and conducting a systematic review of empirical findings on research integrity training. Combined with surveys among students (conducted by another partner), these findings will provide the knowledge basis for the developmental activities of the project.
Anyone involved in the teaching of research integrity is kindly invited to participate in the survey. The survey is completely anonymous and it takes 15-20 minutes to complete it. The survey will be active until the 28th July 2019 & is accessible at the following links:
