The P.I. Program faculty are designing an RCR program to meet your institution’s need to provide 8 hours of face-to-face instruction to NIH and NSF funded trainees. The program adopts evidence-based teaching practices. It is also informed by data from the P.I. Program and the research of program faculty on research compliance, integrity, professionalism, and leadership.
The program will live-stream sessions to local sites. Each session live-stream video of P.I. Program RCR instructors with slides, active learning exercises, and infographics to reinforce key learning points. Instructors will teach effective lab management and leadership practices and strategies for making good professional decisions in each session. Each year the program will offer a minimum of 12 sessions on the topics listed to the right. Local sites must have a proctor to verify attendance and facilitate participation in active learning exercises led by the live-streamed instructors.
