Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) @ GW and Beyond is a semester-long weekly seminar course designed to develop and strengthen ethical problem-solving skills as well as to foster sensitivity to ethical issues in the conduct of research. By examining ethical dilemmas in research, students can explore consequences of ethical decision-making, practice problem-solving strategies, and acquire the ability to respond appropriately to observed wrongdoing. Students will engage by participating in discussions and active learning mechanisms facilitated by active researchers and administrators at the university.
Registration is open to the entire campus community, including undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, researchers, staff and research administrators. Registration is capped at 25 participants, first come, first served. Classes are held on Thursdays, 12:00 p.m. - 2: 00 p.m. throughout the semester, unless otherwise noted.
