Research Ethics Focus of Workshop
Graduate students from across state to meet at ESF
Graduate students, faculty and staff from across the state will meet at ESF for the workshop, "Research Ethics and Cultural Competence" in environmental research, Aug. 17-19.
The National Science Foundation-funded session will be led by Professor David Sonnenfeld of ESF's Department of Environmental Studies, and Dr. Dianne Quigley, Brown University. Researchers from Clarkson University, Cornell University, Upstate Medical University, as well as from ESF, will attend.
The workshop is aimed at graduate students in environmental science, environmental engineering, environmental studies and related fields who are planning to conduct field-based environmental research for their dissertation or thesis work, and who need training on the protection of human subjects, including Institutional Review Board (IRB) review of their research plans.
Training in research ethics and cultural diversity prepares students with new research approaches and methods appropriate to environmental field research, community-based partnerships and research with cultural groups. Upon completing the workshop, graduate students will be prepared to complete IRB applications and address common human subjects protections.
The session includes 12 hours of classroom training and three hours of follow-up online training. Participants will receive a certificate of completion for "Research Ethics/ Human Subjects Protections and Cultural Competence Training."
