Head and Staff TeachRCR Services

TeachRCR Services went public in March 2017 and is currently a one-person operation. It began as a simple Twitter account in 2011 for sharing articles that I consider useful for teaching the responsible conduct of research (RCR), a.k.a, research ethics. I started working on practical and professional ethics when I was a graduate student at Indiana University-Bloomington and I was hired as a part-time Research Assistant in 1988 at the Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and American Institutions. When I received my Ph.D. in 1991 I was hired full time. My first large project was handling much of the logistics of creating the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE). From 1993-2013, Among many other projects on practical and professional ethics, I directed the Teaching Research Ethics project (TRE), which offered an annual workshop for researchers from the sciences and other fields. In its twenty years, the workshops attracted 719 participants from 49 U.S. states and territories and 15 foreign countries representing 235 universities and other institutions. In 2016, IU restructured the Poynter Center and the small staff lost our IU positions.
