PD Session @ Zoom

Time in AEDT

Research integrity is core to all research and research management practice. But it is more than being compliant with NHMRC and ARC rules and guidelines. In this session we will hear from people who work at the coalface of research and research administration. You will hear from one of the authors of the recently launched ARMS Research Integrity Toolkit (Dr Daniel Barr), an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researcher (A/Prof Odette Gibson), and a senior research integrity officer (Rebekah O’Shea). The speakers will explore the broader issues in research integrity but then focus on the practical implications for researchers and research administrators. Navigating the research integrity minefield can seem daunting, with serious implications from transgressions for researchers and institutions like. Our speakers will help you to get you grounded in the fundamentals and also understand the broader integrity issues for conducting research, particularly with the Aboriginal community.
