During the first day of your required orientation, we will present an interactive panel on professional ethics. Our purpose is to engage you in a discussion about some of the complex ethical issues that face professionals conducting research today, whether your area of study is in the sciences, the social sciences, or the humanities.
Over the summer, we are asking you to spend 55 minutes watching a NOVA special the “Secret of Photo 51,” that touches on these issues. You will receive a CANVAS invite to Guarini Ethics (FA19) at your dartmouth.edu address. Please accept the invite and look for a link to the video under “Course Media Gallery.” The film would appear as a thumbnail, that when clicked, opens the film in its own video player.This case study will serve as the foundation for our evening discussion about professional ethics. The faculty panel will weigh in on issues that emerge from the special about professional ethics, but we will also call upon you to discuss potential implications for researchers in the 21st century. We anticipate a lively discussion between faculty and students over these complex issues.
This is a fun event where you will get to know more of the people on campus who can help you, as well as your fellow students in the different graduate programs at Dartmouth.
