Collaborative-200 level

Collaborative Learning RCR Programs - 200 Level - Complete One every 3 years. Image of people around a table.

Collaborative In-person RCR-200 level Courses are designed to engage our community in face-to-face discussions about RCR topics.  There are two options for completing an in-person RCR-200 level course:

  1. Attend an interactive workshop on an RCR topic
  2. Participate in an RCR discussion within your research unit

Visit the RCR Toolbox & Calendar to download materials for a unit-led RCR discussion and to view the RCR Workshop calendar.

1. RCR Workshops

a) RCR Workshops are offered every other month through ASIST/Trent Center and do not require any previous RCR training. Visit the RCR Toolbox & Calendar to learn about upcoming RCR workshops. You will receive RCR credit when you scan your ID badge at the RCR workshop.

b) Attending an interactive Duke event/workshop that covers an RCR topic will also count for RCR credit.  Visit the RCR Toolbox & Calendar to find the RCR workshop calendar where you can see some of the great workshops organized by other Duke offices. Read the RCR Workshop Criteria Guidelines for a more thorough description of how to identify a Duke workshop that will qualify for RCR credit.  To receive RCR credit for participating in a qualifying Duke workshop, complete an online self-attestation form after you attend the event (use self-attest button above).

2. Unit-led RCR discussion sections

Participating in an RCR discussion section within your research unit (at the level of center, department, lab, etc.) is a great way to meet your RCR-200 level requirement.  Devote one of your regularly scheduled meetings to an RCR topic and learn what your colleagues are thinking about and how they are responding to research integrity questions and challenges.   ASIST has developed an RCR Toolbox, which contains a library of content materials and process guides on how to lead and participate in an open RCR discussion.  To receive RCR credit for participating in a RCR discussion, complete an online self-attestation form after you attend the discussion (use self-attest button above).

What are the implications of presenting “in-progress” research to the media or social media? How chances to publish in an academic journal will change if your partial research results were shared earlier. What are the ethical considerations regarding authorship and recycling research results?
