Moving Beyond Regulatory Compliance:
Building Institutional Support for Reflection on Ethics and Integrity in Research

1pm* AEST, Friday 14 June

Review arrangements that are rule-based and focused on enforcing compliance do not belong in institutions committed to the pursuit of knowledge. And yet, many policies, procedures and training regimes seem to be predicated on such a model. In Australia, these behaviours persist despite the efforts of those drafting the National Statement and the Australian Code. If we are serious about moving the focus from regulatory compliance towards supporting ethical conduct and integrity in research, we need to: pay greater attention to curriculum and pedagogy; develop far more sophisticated resource materials; build up an empirical base for understanding research behaviour and how to promote ethics and integrity; and, alter patterns of communication between researchers and ethics review processes. 

Registration is open to all ARMS members. Visit the event page to register.

*Please note this session begins at 1pm AEST, unlike previous PD Sessions @ Zoom
