2015 Safety & Ethics in Student Research Workshop

 You will NOT want to miss this GREAT training for upper elementary, middle, & high school STEM-H educators!  Middle and high school student researchers are also welcome to attend the workshop.  We have taken what were three separate workshops and combined them into one, 3-module training that only takes 4 hours to complete!  

This workshop offers training and resources designed to help you and your students identify, clarify, and address safety & ethics challenges that frequently arise when designing, conducting, or reporting research...and applies to research done in the classroom as well as projects taken on by students outside of class.  

The workshop includes Responsible Conduct of Research, Human Protections, and Animal Protections.

Facilitators:  Dr. Bill Gannon, Director of UNM's Responsible Conduct of Research Program, will facilitate the Responsible Conduct of Research module.  Linda Petree, Director of the UNM Main Campus Institutional Review board, will facilitate the Human Protections module.  Katy Mirowsky-Garcia, Operations Manager for the UNM Office of Animal Care Compliance, will facilitate the Animal Protections module.

Topics to be Covered (sample...):  Topics that may be highlighted during the Responsible Conduct of Research module (& may be covere or repeated in other modules as needed) are the appropriateness of the research design, the use of invasive vs. non-invasive research-specific procedures, the return of individual research results or incidental findings to participants, confidentiality/anonymity, the inclusion or exclusion of vulnerable populations, community-based research questions, social/policy implications, plaigarism concerns, and ethical theory.  Animal protections training will discuss animal care (husbandry), ethical considerations, safety, and consideration of alternatives to use of vertebrate animals.  The Human Protections module will cover safety/ethical considerations specific to use of human participants in research studies, historical context for the requirements to protect human participants in research studies, identification of protected/high risk populations, etc.  

All information will be geared to address middle and high school level  research projects.

Please note that this workshop will be held on Saturday 9/19/15 from 1:00-5:00pm.  Sign-In will begin at 12:30pm.  The training will begin promptly at 1:00pm!

Light snacks & bottled water will be provided.
