Research integrity and ethics, reliable research results, teaching and learning

Learning Cards

With the Path2Integrity learning cards for research integrity, secondary school students and bachelor students, master students and early career researchers are sensitised for the topic and get to learn what it means that good research is based on honesty. Through the use of the dialogical method, students actively deal with research integrity questions in roleplay and storytelling. They engage in real-life examples and acquire competencies that are necessary for the development and use of reliable research results and finally for establishing a culture of research integrity.

Two title stories introduce the topic by means of a dilemma situation:

When choosing from the S-series, please use Emma's chat - What happened at LONA Science Centre? (Download video)

When choosing from the M-series or Y-series, please use Hannah's protocol - Is there a need for a research integrity policy?
