Modeling Effective Research Ethics Education in Graduate International Collaborations

Project Summary

The ability to resolve ethical issues that arise in international research is critical to the success of U.S.-trained scientists and engineers. It is also essential to ensuring the integrity of U.S. research with international partners. With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF #1135345), CGS completed a three-year, collaborative project to develop accessible and replicable models for preparing STEM researchers to navigate ethical challenges in international research collaborations.

Project Goals

  • Identify and test learning outcomes for research ethics education in international collaborations
  • Document approaches to using those outcomes to enhance the preparation of STEM graduate students
  • Develop case studies based on successful programs and an online repository of graduate learning outcomes
