Research integrity training: knowledge clip 2: the trainer perspective
Knowledge clip 2: the trainer perspective
In order to make a successful training module, stand-alone or as part of another course, there are some terms and conditions you as a teacher/trainer need to consider, in terms of the design, the content of the training and the characteristics of the trainer. This clip can be seen as a preparatory background exercise to the why and how of integrity training. In that sense it differs from the other knowledge clips; it is aimed at the trainers themselves and the content is more reflective in nature and contains tips and tricks, rather than prepared teaching material.
It is important that all teachers/trainers go through clip 1 and 2 before starting to develop or deliver training. This can be done on an individual basis but the presentation is also suitable for small groups of teachers/trainers who want to prepare training courses together e.g. as part of a learning line research integrity.

The research integrity training knowledge clips: a series of 7 clips
This video is part of Ghent University’s knowledge clips on training research integrity. In total there are 7 clips:
Knowledge clip 1 – presentation: the basics
Knowledge clip 2 – presentation: the trainer perspective
Knowledge clip 3 – exercise: the good researcher
Knowledge clip 4 – exercise: the lab
Knowledge clip 5 – exercise: the dilemma game
Knowledge clip 6 – exercise: the middle position
Knowledge clip 7 – exercise: closure
Knowledge clip 1 and 2 have a theoretical approach. Clip 1 deals with the concept of research integrity.
Clips 3 to 7 each deal with a different learning or exercise format and are directly applicable, both in terms of the content of the 'learning material' and in terms of support material for the teacher/trainer.
It is advisable to watch clip 1 and clip 2 first. The other clips can be used according to one’s own needs. The exercises are based on existing training material (in particular from the VIRT2UE project). The exercises were finetuned to fit better into the training context at Ghent University.
The clips aim to inspire and support (future) research integrity trainers. Both the theoretical background and the exercises can be used in different training settings, e.g., in a research environment (for example as postdoc in your research group, as group leader; professor or PI, etc.) or in the regular educational setting (as a teacher in BaMa courses).
Attention to the concept of research integrity is a prerequisite for quality work in all of academia.
