Presentation Overview

Engage in an interactive simulation demo followed by a discussion on the simulation and  instructional design attributes.  The Office of Research Integrity has developed a series of interactive movie simulations to help improve decision-making in the context of research conduct. “The Lab” simulation allows you to pick a specific type of character and make decisions for them. Its purpose is to help participants gain a better understanding of the decision-making process to avoid research misconduct. Dr. Smith will demonstrate the interactive simulation and lead a lively discussion on its impact on you and other graduate students at UCF.
