Call for movies: Movies that matter…

Last modified: May 29, 2017

To be a scientist can be hard. There are many rules of scientific conduct, but there is also reality. The question is: how can we improve Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) education in a way that students are better prepared for the work, problems, pressures and temptations that they might encounter? We are currently experimenting with the use of movies in RCR-education. Movies can be useful because students can identify and empathize with the (main) characters and get a feel of the moral dilemmas and sometimes subconscious values and unwritten rules in academia. For our project we are looking for more movies (fiction and documentary) that deal with research integrity. If you have any suggestions please let us know at!
