  RCR Workshop: Issues in Ethical Research  
(Seminars/Workshops)

This is the first workshop in the Responsible Conduct of Research Spring Institute: Ethics in Research, the Workplace, and Life: Beyond Compliance

In this presentation, Dr. Jotterand will examine the current emphasis on compliance in professional ethics. Responsible conduct of research requires compliance with federal and states laws. As such these laws provide a framework to determine instances of scientific misconduct. He argues, however, that compliance alone limits the scope of ethical analysis because of its emphasis on abstract principles and norms, and its failure to fully capture the complexity of moral life. He contends that professional ethics ought to be grounded on a virtue-based ethic. Virtue ethics provides a deeper understanding of human moral psychology essential for the development of a professional identity. This in turn requires an understanding of the nature of one's profession, its role in society, and its moral obligations.

Featured Q&A Panelists:
Dr. Tim Henry: Assistant Dean, Honors College; Lecturer, Biology
Dr. Nicolette Lopez: Assistant Professor, Psychology
Dr. Charles Hermes: Visiting Professor, Philosophy & Humanities
