New ethics seminar format

The annual ethics seminar had a new twist this year that created a more interactive discussion and brought the concept of conducting ethical science closer to home. The trainees were asked to anonymously submit scenarios in which they were involved or knew about where professional and scientific ethics came into question. These scenarios were anonymously submitted to a panel of faculty (Sarah Hobbie-Ecology, Evolution and Behavior) and conflict resolution professionals (Josh Casper-Student Conflict Resolution Center) who then expressed their opinions on how each ethical dilemma should have been resolved. This seminar format created a very lively and educational discussion about ethics in the sciences.
