Abstract

This presentation was part of the AAAS Annual Conference professional development workshop, National Science Foundation and Ethics Education in Science and Engineering, during the recent meeting in San Diego, California (18-22 February). Dr. Michael Gorman, Program Director, Science, Technology & Society, National Science Foundation, moderated the workshop presentations and the discussion that followed. In addition, he contributed a set of powerpoint slides outlining the role of NSF in its response to the America Competes Act, including a commitment to support an online resource in ethics education. Dr. Philip Langlais, Vice Provost for Graduate Studies & Research, Old Dominion University, presented recommendations for developing institutional RCR and mentoring programs based on the new NSF and NIH RCR requirements. Dr. Kathleen Flint, Project Manager, National Postdoctoral Association, gave recommendations for unique RCR training needs of postdocs and reported on the NPA "Bring RCR Home Project," a national project that worked to develop local RCR programs for postdocs. Dr. Jane Fountain, Professor of Political Science and Public Policy, and Director of the National Center for Digital Government and the Science, Technology & Society Initiative, University of Massachusetts Amherst, presented recent developments at ESENCe, one of the beta sites sponsored by NSF. The purpose of ESENCe is to preserve and widely disseminate a variety of materials on ethics and the responsible conduct of research in science and engineering disciplines. In addition, the presentation summarized recent development of cases, background notes and teaching materials regarding international dimensions of ethics education.
