Assessing Teaching and Learning in the Responsible Conduct of Research


As with all effective teaching, a key element in any unit designed to teach research ethics is assessment of student learning, whether the “unit” is a whole course, a brown bag lunch seminar, or a few sessions or segments of sections within a course.

This extensive guide provides some answers. It also includes some examples of assessment strategies used in other RCR courses and modules.
