TaSkR III (April 12-14, 2011)

 

The third annual Teaching Skills in International Research Ethics (TaSkR) workshop was held April 12-14, 2011 in the Health Information and Translational Sciences (HITS) Building, room 1110.

This workshop focused primarily on the ethics of research involving human subjects--both behavioral and biomedical--conducted in an international forum, as well as developing stronger pedagogical skills.

The workshop was attended by over 40 participants plus faculty facilitators. Participants included faculty who teach within the broad domain of international research ethics, whether this is in the classroom, through lectures, or mentoring students, fellows, and post-docs. Attendees included faculty who teach in medicine, public health, behavioral science, and a number of liberal arts subjects. Guest speakers included: Henk ten Have (University of Duquesne) Peter Schwartz (Indiana University), Margaret Gaffney (Indiana University), Edwin Were (Moi University), Kenneth Goodman (University of Miami), Martin Were (Indiana University), Charles Rotimi (National Institutes of Health), and David Ayuku (Moi University). We will be joined by Joseph Ali (Johns Hopkins University), Ross Upshur (University of Toronto), Henry Silverman (University of Maryland), and Solomon Benatar (University of Toronto, University of Cape Town). TaSkR also included an African Fogarty Director's Roundtable discussion. We hope this discussion will lead to mutual problem solving strategies and enhance collaboration between the African Fogarty Directors.
