A few weeks ago, I finished my course module on “Research Integrity and Ethics” for the graduate students at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Goa. It was a delight to teach this module and my students were also very interested. Needless to say that in these times of COVID-19 , it was all conducted online! Shown here is an image of my students, that I took with their consent. (I am in the bottom right corner).
