Description/Abstract

As undergraduate students gain research experience, they may find themselves in ethically-sensitive situations for which they have no training. In an effort to get students thinking and talking about research ethics, a workshop was held at an annual undergraduate research symposium. Student actors portrayed situations while faculty moderators challenged the audience to discuss the issues. Representatives from the Office of Research Integrity were present to clarify guidelines as necessary. Commonalities and differences were found between the natural and social sciences, as well as between individuals. This pedagogical approach successfully challenged students to realize the ethically-sensitive situations they may encounter.
