Teaching Skills in International Research Ethics (TaSkR) is the annual workshop hosted by the Indiana University – Moi University Academic Research Ethics partnership (IU-Moi AREP), a program supported by a recently renewed 5-year grant from the Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health. This annual IU-Moi AREP highlight is designed to build research ethics capacity at both universities.

  • Overall Objective: Enable participants to learn pedagogical methods and acquire skills for teaching international research ethics. 
  • Learners: Faculty and students involved (or intending to become involved) in teaching and mentoring students in international research settings.
  • Teachers: Experts in international research ethics, including those from other Fogarty-funded programs. 

Different Pedagogical approaches are used including lectures and case studies built in to TaSkR, which presents opportunities for “teachable moments."



APRIL 15 - 17, 2015 

 The 7th Annual TaSkR Workshop will be held in Indianapolis from April 15 – 17, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This year's theme is "Epidemic Ethics" and will focus on ethical, legal and social issues arising for researchers, practitioners, ethics review committees and policy makers. This multi-disciplinary workshop will include lectures, interactive presentations, panels, a Mock IRB review, team based learning, and an engaging House of Commons Debate featuring a local and regional expert, with participation from the audience. The workshop is free to attend. There are a limited number of spots available on a "first come, first served" basis, so you are encouraged to register early.

Imani Workshop Sale at TaSkR VII

In support of the AMPATH Program’s Imani Workshops, IU-Moi AREP will feature Imani workshop sales at TaSkR VII, offered by Global Gifts. Imani Workshop is a revenue-generating social enterprise focused on producing high-quality crafts by HIV positive artisans in western Kenya. Global Gifts is working to help establish a market for the products made at Imani Workshops.  Imani employs mostly women but some men also who are HIV+ and are receiving treatment through AMPATH.  Imani had a grant funded position for several years that helped them to sell their products in the US but grant funding ran out and at that point they had no access to the US market.  This is why Global Gifts has made the commitment to help re-establish and broaden their US market presence.

Read more about Global Gifts and support their work with Imani at their website and through their blog. Thank you.
