This standalone online course is run by the Researcher Academy as part of the Faculty of Engineering Training Programme
This is an online standalone self-study alternative to the asynchronous and synchronous Online Course: Engineering with Society: Introduction to Responsible Research (Online) AND to the face-to-face course: Responsible Innovation: Engineering with Society
The course comprises of:
There are no training points associated with this course. However you can obtain a certificate of attendance/ participation if you complete all parts of the course (as ascertained via an activity completion report check).
Students therefore need to ensure each section/ activity's tick box is ticked off to show progress/ completion.
Students must have a complete line of ticks on their activity to get a certificate.
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) has rapidly become an important mode of research and innovation governance and practice within the UK, the EU and beyond, aiming to more closely align science and technology with societal needs and values.
The aim of the module is to provide an overview of the wider social, cultural, economic and political context of engineering, chemical and materials sciences and innovation, through introducing them to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) concepts, practices and processes. Through pre-recorded lectures, post course reading and reflection, students will develop the knowledge and skills to understand and think critically about approaches to RRI within Engineering contexts, and to implement RRI in their current and future research and innovation activities.
The course will enable Engineering PGRs
Most importantly, learners are guided through activities to develop the competencies required to adopt an RRI approach in their own research projects and field of research.
