Teaching Research Ethics, May 14-17, 2013
Now accepting 2013 sponsors. See SPONSOR the WORKSHOP for details.
Each year the Poynter Center at Indiana University and additional sponsors offer the Teaching Research Ethics Workshop (TRE) to provide training for those involved in teaching research ethics or in administering research programs. The workshop emphasizes a variety of pedagogical approaches to teaching research ethics through sessions on ethical theory, research ethics, trainee and authorship issues, assessment and evaluation, responsible data management, integrity in research, conflict of interest, and international research.
Registration for the 2013 workshop is now open.
The 2013 workshop will be May 14-17 (Tuesday, 4 p.m. - Friday, noon) at the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU) on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington. The fee is $700. Participants are responsible for their own hotel reservations. A block of rooms is available at the IMU.
We ask each participant to prepare for the workhsop by reading some material in advance. Registrants will receive information in late March or early April about the link to the online readings.
Each workshop participant will be assigned to one intensive track that will meet three times. Each track will have 10-20 members and a facilitator. Meeting in small groups three days in a row will allow participants to get to know each other better, to shape the agenda for the discussion themselves, and to discuss a topic of interest in depth. Registrants will select the one they want and will be assigned on a first-served basis. We anticipate that most registrants will be assigned to their first or second choice.

Each workshop participant will also be assigned to two breakout sessions, one on Wednesday and a different one on Thursday. The members of a breakout session will not necessarily be members of a given intensive track. Registrants will select the ones they want and be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Workshops like TRE offer formal and informal opportunities to learn, both from faculty and from each other. We organize an optional off-campus dinner on Wednesday. The cost is not included in the workshop fee, but we encourage people to attend. On Thursday evening we host an optional open house at the Poynter Center, and encourage participants to visit local restaurants afterward.
The fee for the Teaching Research Ethics Workshop is $700. A $100 deposit is required with registration; the balance of the fee must be paid by April 30.
A full refund less a service charge will be made if written notice of cancellation is received by April 30; a 50% refund will be made if written cancellation is received between May 1 and May 6; after May 6 we cannot offer a refund. There is a $40 fee which will be subracted from the amount returned to you.
The workshop fee covers materials, dinner on Tuesday, a light breakfast on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and lunch on Wednesday and Thursday. Participants must make their own Travel and Lodging arrangements.
