RCR Workshops

The RCR Committee, Graduate School, Office of Research, Economic Engagement and Outreach, and the Collaborative Research Excellence (CoRE) Initiative hold a series of workshops each academic year on the theme, Research Integrity from Inception through Dissemination, addressing issues that arise during the life cycle of a research study.    Below you will find the information about this semester's workshops that are focused on collaborative research and scholarship as well as a research integrity-related workshop focused on involving college students as participants in research.   At the bottom of the webpage you will find the RCR Workshop Library containing videos of past offerings.

Fall 2021 RCR Workshops

Tuesday, October 12, 2:10-3:30 pm via Zoom

Collaborative Research and Scholarship Part 1: Charting the Course for Success
For many fields in the sciences and humanities, working in teams or collaborating in groups of all sizes is rapidly becoming essential to address complex challenges.  Forming groups of individuals with diverse backgrounds, perspectives and expertise to work on thorny issues allows for creative thinking and problem solving. However, it also presents challenges that can include different values, personalities, and behaviors; various communication, leadership and work styles; and diverse perspectives.  Establishing the groundwork at the beginning of a collaboration or the development of a team to address these challenges is key to creating an effectively functioning group.  In the first of this two-part workshop, presenters will review the theory of successful teams/collaborations and discuss strategies for establishing and launching a successful research group. 

Presenters:
Tuck Pescosolido, PhD, Organizational Behavior & Management
Nathan Schwadron, PhD, Physics & Astronomy and Space Science Center
Heidi Asbjornsen, PhD, Natural Resources & The Environment

Collaborative Research and Scholarship Part 2: Managing Differences for Success
For many fields in the sciences and humanities, working in teams or collaborating in groups of all sizes is rapidly becoming essential to address complex challenges.  Forming groups of individuals with diverse backgrounds, perspectives and expertise to work on thorny issues allows for creative thinking and problem solving. However, it also presents challenges.  In the second of this two-part workshop, panelists will highlight successes and issues presented by teams/collaborations that involve different types of partners such as international, business/industry, government, community, other institutions and members of differing academic rank. The panelists will also discuss their approaches and practical solutions to promote effectively functioning teams/groups.

Conducting Research Involving College Students
A considerable amount of research takes place at UNH involving college students as research participants. This session will provide an overview of pertinent laws and regulations affecting this population (e.g., the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, Title IX), identify different types of issues that frequently arise when conducting research involving students at UNH and provide strategies for addressing such issues in an application to the UNH Institutional Review Board (IRB).  Presented by: UNH Research Integrity Services and the Office of the Registrar.
