Although training in Laboratory Animal Welfare
issues is mandated by the Federal government and
by my institution, I believe that this training
is really not very useful for new faculty and
students?
of Responders
Strongly agree

24
For this type of instruction, I would prefer a
presentation model that would require the learner
to actively participate in games, videos or other
exercises designed to emphasize important
concepts.

About how many hrs did it take you to complete
your Lab Animal Welfare Course requirements?

26
I think that the Internet is an appropriate tool
to deliver basic instruction in the ethical
conduct of research with animal subjects.

Assuming a similar time commitment, would you
prefer another vehicle for this mandated
instruction?

CITI Program to provide basic training in Lab
Animal Welfare?

Scrolling through the content vs. click from
"page to page Please provide us with some
feedback regarding the current presentation
model.
I DO NOT like the current presentation model another approach should be implemented. 3
The "page to page" is better because I could pause and reflect on important points in the content. 5
I prefer the "page to page" approach with interactive games or activities to break up the text. 6
I DO NOT recommend the "Page to Page" model as it would increase the time to complete the course. 10
The materials presented in the course are new to me. I like the current presentation model. 16
I am familiar with the content. The current approach permits an efficient review of the material. 20
The current approach enabled me to read through the content as if I where reading a book or journal. 40

The RCR Research Survey
  • Is provided to learner when the RCR Course is
    passed.
  • Is approved by UM IRB.
  • Is voluntary and anonymous
  • 2590 CITI RCR course completed per month.
  • 787 voluntary RCR surveys submitted / month

Working Hypotheses
  • Although mentoring is crucial to the social and
    professional development of students and young
    investigators, mentoring programs are not wide
    spread in academia.
  • The role of Mentor and Research advisor is often
    confused.
  • Many people who mentors may be ill prepared for
    the job.

I now plan to take a more active role in
promoting ethical research practices by
Add a research ethics module to my course. 9
Take an advanced research ethics course. 16
Encourage my institution to adopt RCR education. 16
Becoming a mentor. 24
Attending more ethics related seminars. 34
Status quo nothing more 40
44
If you DO NOT have a mentor at this time, choose
all that apply to you.

Mentoring was a rather unproductive experience. 5
I had a mentor early in my career. We don't communicate very much any more. 8
A mentor would be a waste of time at this point. 9
I think that I have been missing out on a major resource. I intend to find someone who can mentor me. 22
The module on mentoring helped me understand importance of mentoring for scientists in training. 56

If you are mentoring students and post docs in
research ethics or the responsible conduct of

I have attended seminars or conferences on research ethics. 12
I have taken other courses in research ethics, and/or read about mentoring. 17
Many years of experience teaching and advising students. 18
I am now passing along to my students the wisdom I gained from my mentor. 18

Sometimes the research advisor serves a dual role
of mentor and research supervisorWhich choice
most closely describes your situation.
53
Is your mentor and res. advisor the same
person?YES!

54
Assuming that a faculty-student mentor may
require a skill set that is different from that
of the research adviser, how well prepared do you
think that you are to serve as an effective
mentor?

Does your institution or organization have an
official program specifically designed to match

Conclusions
  • Data management is the most common research
    ethics topic discussed by mentors and mentees
  • 25 of students say discussions on research
    ethics with mentors are rare events.
  • Only 5 of mentors say that discussing research
    ethics with students is a rare event.
  • Rather low of people who mentor students have
    specific training.

58
Conclusions
  • For gt 2/3 of students the mentor and res. advisor
    are the same person.
  • Majority of survey subjects didn't know if their
    institutions had a mentoring program.
  • most pronounced in student groups

59
Summary
  • 32 growth for CITI-Lab Animal.
  • Excellent product that exceeds the federal
    mandate.
  • Member institutions recognize the value of the
    program.
  • Learners recognize value of the program.
  • Concerns
  • 40 of institutions use CITI exclusively.
  • IACUC members course not rated as highly as
    others.
  • We could / should take advantage of the survey
    tool to ask some questions about how learners
    interact with their IACUC.
  • Need to implement refresher courses before the
    next meeting.
