In view of federal government guidelines on training in research responsibility, six sessions in Fall 2014 will address issues of research responsibility. Attending all six sessions will fulfill the federal government research responsibility requirement. There are readings for each session. The readings are on the workshop CTools site, PSC RCRS F14. Sessions will be a discussion of each topic and consideration of the readings.

We have received certification from U-M that this plan satisfies the new federal requirement. It will be recorded who participated in each session. If a student wants credit for the session but cannot attend, he or she can read the readings for the session and write a five-page, double-spaced paper reflecting on the topic or some aspect of the topic which the person thought was especially important or relevant to their work. That paper should be uploaded to the workshop’s CTools Dropbox facility. A student who is satisfying this requirement through registering in SOC 800 or Econ will not get credit until there has been attendance or a paper written for each session.

In each session except the first, another scholar will join Barbara Anderson, which improves the quality of discussion.
