Course Description and Objectives
This class will utilize case studies for debate, class participation, and papers to help students gain skills to recognize and resolve research dilemmas. Objectives of this class include: (1) understand basic elements of ethical dilemmas; (2) to understand basic ethical theories and frameworks for solving ethical dilemmas; (3) to examine ethical dilemmas within a behavioral or medical science research context; and, (4) to examine ways of eliminating bias and promoting objectivity in a behavioral or medical science research context.
Section I: Overview What is ethics? What are ethical dilemmas? Code of ethics Research code of ethics Principles and biases of decision making Framework for resolving dilemmas Section II: Use of human research subjects Risk/benefit ratio Recruitment Informed consent/coercion Privacy and confidentiality Section III: Ethical considerations of study design and samples Methodology and samples Clinical research studies Randomization Control groups Placebos 1
Section IV: Vulnerable populations Prisoners Mentally challenged Pregnant women Children Elderly Section V: Conducting research in different cultures Cultural sensitivity International research Section VI: Misconduct in research Misrepresentation of data Sloppiness/arrogance Plagiarism Misappropriation Interference Whistleblowers Section VII: Conflicts, funding, and ownership Conflicts of interest Funding Ownership of data and results Patents, copyrights, and Intellectual property Section VIII: Eliminating bias and promoting objectivity Scientific integrity: Individual and organizational factors Peer review process Personal and professional biases Overconfidence Responsible mentorship Research on ethics TOPIC Section I: Overview Section II: Use of human research subjects Section III: Ethical considerations of study design and samples Section IV: Vulnerable populations Section V: Conducting research in different cultures Section VI: Misconduct in research Section VII: Conflicts, funding, and ownership Section VIII: Eliminating bias and promoting objectivity Student project presentations WEEKS 1-6 7-8 9 10 11 12 13 14-15 16
IV. Course Requirements and Grading
Papers: Papers will comprise 40% of the grade. Papers will track the student’s intellectual progress through the class. Students will be assigned papers based either on specific readings or on specific topics. Each class will begin with a review of student papers and responses/thoughts by the class. An example of class readings for each section is attached to this syllabus, but is subject to change for a variety of reasons (e.g., student interest, updated articles, expansion of a particular topic at the request of students). Class Participation: Class participation will comprise 30% of the grades. Students are expected to participate in all class discussions fully. This class is not a lecture class but rather an experiential learning process. This will include discussion of papers, all assigned readings, and class content. Projects: Project papers and presentations will comprise 30% of the class grades. Projects will be determined by students based on their particular area of interest but will be subject to approval by course instructor. Writing projects are all expected to be typed, readable and professional. Grading will be based on content as well as writing ability. Presentation of projects will also be included in the grade. Example projects may include developing a case study, writing a paper for publication focused on ethical research issues, or reviewing an ethical theory of decision making framework that was not discussed in detail in the class. Although these are examples, the determination of a project is open to facilitate student learning, application, and creativity with this content area.
ATTENDANCE As this is a graduate level course, you are expected to attend class and be prepared to discuss the required readings. If you have a university excused absence you should notify the instructor prior to the class, when possible. Each unexcused absences will result in 5% reduction in the final grade for the course.
