Feedback form is now closed.
Internationalization of the PhD is getting real, and it has impacted and raised new questions about the PhD in so many areas, especially when it comes to ethics. Indeed, internationalization had digitalization as a direct consequence, forcing everyone to deal with this digital world and with new rules. In addition to that, the COVID-19 pandemic intensified this digital aspect and raised even more questions and challenges with everyone having to work and conduct their research remotely.

People from different timelines and career stages will discuss what has changed over time with the internationalization of the PhD, how digitalization impacted research ethics, the challenges that COVID-19 raised in terms of ethics, how to use digitalization to your advantage (in your research projects and in your teaching activities), the impact of digitalization and COVID-19 on their own processes, how to make sure you are working ethically online (plagiarism, recognizing other’s contribution), etc. The different career paths and stages will allow the speakers to compare their views, to complement each other, and to produce a lively debate.

  • 3 speakers (one of each from early / mid / late career) make a presentation based on their own experience with ethics and the changes they identify due to internationalization, to COVID-19 and digitalization, the challenges it represented for them, while others react to the presentation (45min, 15min each)
