P2I Research: Examining different approaches to teaching responsible conduct of research
Path2Integrity project partners, Dr. Agnieszka Koterwas, Dr. Agnieszka Dwojak-Matras and Dr. Katarzyna Kalinowska, published their new paper in the open access journal FACETS. Their article examines the dialogical approaches of teaching responsible conduct of research as part of the positive integrity trend centered on encouraging ethical behavior. Therein, the topic of the paper intertwines with the goals and objectives of the Path2Integrity project.
The article entitled "Dialogical teaching of research integrity: an overview of selected methods" provides a brief summary of a few dialogical methods based on real-life examples that can be used to educate ethical research and share experiences on good scientific conduct.
The authors of the paper describe such approaches as: storytelling, rotatory role playing, and the fishbowl debate, along with the "Dilemma Game" tool, "ConscienceApp" performance, and a flipped classroom idea.
In conclusion, the researchers state that the paper can be treated as a basic guide for teachers - a dissemination of a valuable toolkit in teaching ethical issues. On the other hand, continued studies and evaluation on applying all the methods are needed to collect empirical evidence on promising, effective, and profound research integrity learning experiences.
