Dear *|FNAME|* *|LNAME|*,

Next week NRIN organizes a symposium on ethics and integrity education, accompanying the inaugural speech of professor Mariëtte van den Hoven, our newly appointed chair of NRIN. Furthermore, the video's of NRIN's last symposium 'How to foster responsible research practices' are available too.

Symposium 'Ethics & integrity education in development: moving towards evidence-based education'

The fields of integrity education and (medical) ethics education are developing rapidly. Integrity education is a relatively new field on the European continent, yet evidence on the effects and impact of these trainings is already widely researched. However, the knowledge we have on what guarantees effective research integrity education is still limited, and the desire to showcase best practices and to conduct research on the moral competences of professionals, has been increasing. 

For this symposium, we discuss educational research on both types of education and training as the overlap is obvious: integrity education is often taught by professional ethics trainers, integrity trainings aim to help interpret research values like honesty and transparency and research ethics in many ethics courses often overlaps with integrity courses. With this symposium we aim to offer a sneak preview of developments in researching research integrity trainings and (medical) ethics courses.

How can Scholarship of Teaching in Learning (SOTL) be helpful to undertake systematic inquiries about student learning? How is impact of integrity courses currently being measured and what are new developments? What is the status quo of research on (medical) ethics courses in the Netherlands? And how can we interpret trends towards a more evidence-based approach of education in this field?
