Limited Offer: Virt2ue Research Integrity Training Online

For a limited period, the Doctoral College is offering its ECR and PGR researchers access to the Virt2ue online training course on Research Integrity.

The three 1-hour modules cover the following topics:

Module 1: Introduction to Research integrity

Module 2: Introduction of Virtue Ethics to Research Integrity

Module 3: Virtue Ethics Applied under current research conditions

As researchers, we are expected to conduct our research with integrity and with ethical values, but what exactly does that mean?

This short online training will take you through the basics. You will be able to better articulate what research integrity looks like and think more about how to embed a positive research culture in your own research environment. Training such as this is important in establishing yourself as a professional, ethical and well-informed researcher.

By completing this training, you will be able to provide evidence of your developing skills in the area of Research integrity and Research culture – both of which are highly valued by funders and sought after in Academic research careers.

The training consists of three 1-hour long modules. They can be completed in your own time and at your own pace. You may wish to just try the first introductory module, but it is recommended to complete all three to get the full overview.

The modules were created by the Embassy of Good Science and the Virt2ue training programme project ends in July this year. We therefore recommend that researchers aim to access the online training before July 2021 as we cannot guarantee its availability after this point.
