COLT 700 - Responsible and Ethical Conduct of Research

This course encourages inquiry into what constitutes the responsible and ethical conduct of research. We will consider, on one level, the ethical questions inherent in the choices we make about what we study and research, how, and why. On another level, we will consider the broader values and expectations, at institutional, economic, or societal levels, that drive scholarship, and question whether these factors encourage or challenge ethical decision-making.
