Path2Integrity workshop at symposium on scientific practice
During an international symposium on scientific practice that was convened at Coburg University on 11 and 12 November 2019, Path2Integrity held a workshop entitled "Path2Integrity – Learning how to argue for good research practice". The participants – educators and instructors from various academic disciplines who regularly teach bachelor and master students – promote and train scientific work in various topics, such as academic writing, working with reference management software, philosophy of science and other fields. The workshop was based on the Path2Integrity learning cards which raise awareness among students towards the responsible conduct of research, convey facts about research integrity and point to the importance of good research practice for society.
Lisa Häberlein, co-author of the learning cards and chair of the workshop, was pleased to see how positively the material was received by the experts present: "In this workshop the Path2Integrity learning cards were presented to teaching professionals for the first time. They are one of our core target groups, which made this workshop rather challenging. I am very happy that the learning cards were perceived with great interest and deemed suitable for teaching research integrity in the class room. The valuable inputs the participants shared with us will help to improve the learning cards further."
