SESSION 8 - PANEL DISCUSSION: MEMBERS OF THE FACULTY
Jordan Hall Rm 1-14

  • The goal of the panel discussion is to deal with any and all research ethics issues that may have been unresolved or simply missed during the course.  This session develops most rapidly if students come prepared with queries for the panel.  It is also helpful if senior members of the audience (post-docs) present for discussion an ethical dilemma that may have confronted them or their colleagues.
