  • Goals:
    • Retain the overall structure and some of the content of the existing CITI humanities course.
    • Omit science-specific content and add new content that is relevant for scholars in the humanities.
    • Use examples and case studies that illustrate the application of RCR principles in humanities settings
    • Include recent events (e.g. prominent cases of plagiarism in history, fraud in art) as examples of scholarly misconduct.

D. of Ed. Report
  • Analysis of 99 studies between 1996 and 2008 comparing online vs. classroom learning.
  • Some grade or high school setting, but, most done in colleges, universities, med schools and the military.
  • Students doing some or all on line ranked in 59th performance %tile.
  • Students doing just classroom ranked in 50th performance %tile.
    • “Most of the variations in the way online learning was used did not significantly affect student learning outcomes.”
    • “The effectiveness of online learning approaches appears quite broad across different content and learner types.”

working hypotheses
Working Hypotheses

Although mentoring is crucial to the social and professional development of students and young investigators, mentoring programs are not wide spread in academia.

The role of Mentor and Research advisor is often confused.

Many people who mentors may be ill prepared for the job.

  • Data management is the most common research ethics topic discussed by mentors and mentees
    • >25% of Students say that discussing research ethics with mentor is a rare event.
    • Only 5% of mentors say that discussing research ethics with student is a rare event.
  • Rather low % of people mentoring students (~30%) say they have specific training for mentoring.
  • For ~60% of students, the mentor and res. advisor are the same person.
  • Only about 20% of responders indicated that their institution has a mentoring program.
  • Majority of survey subjects didn't know if their institutions had a mentoring program.
    • most pronounced in student groups
citi rcr satisfaction surveys

CITI RCR Satisfaction Surveys

RCR Course Satisfaction Survey

9-1-08 to 10-1-09

The RCR modules present a short video case study as an introduction to the module. Please provide us with some feedback regarding these "Introduction" videos. Choose as many as is appropriate to convey your opinions.
Case studies are thought to be an effective approach for adult learners. Most of the modules contained short case studies imbedded in the text (folder icons). Did you review any of these case studies.
The case studies were very useful to put the ethical concepts described in the foundation text into a practical "real life" context.

Strongly disagree strongly agree

After completing the CITI RCR Course, I have a better understanding of the ethical issues central to the research enterprise so that I can conduct my work with the highest level of integrity.

Strongly disagree strongly agree

Now that I have completed the CITI RCR Course, I am more confident in my ability to advise a student or a colleague on an issue involving the Responsible Conduct of Research.

Strongly disagree strongly agree

Having completed the CITI Course in the Responsible Conduct of Research and gained a better understanding of how damaging research misconduct can be to students, to the institutions and to other investigators, I am now more likely to report a clear act of research misconduct to an appropriate person at my organization.

Strongly disagree strongly agree
