Programme: MY530: Workshops in Advanced Qualitative Research
Course: Research Ethics

Ethical considerations are a key element of well designed research.  This session will set out the fundamental principles of research ethics in the social sciences as they apply to PhD research projects.  Standard topics such as informed consent, deception, and confidentiality will be discussed as well as newer issues such as ethics relating to video, photographs and digital media.
In the second part of this session, we will look at some practical examples of ethical problems.  You are welcome to bring for discussion any ethical issues you are facing in your research.


Participants should have taken in their 1st year of study some or all of the following courses: MY400 Fundamentals of Social Science Research Design; MY421 Qualitative Research Methods: MY591 Workshop in Applied Analysis Software, or equivalent introductory skills training for qualitative research.


PhD students will be given priority and need to state this in the "message to tutor" field when applying for a place. All other participants will have their places confirmed a few days before each of the workshops takes place, if there are spaces available. This will be done on a first-come first-served basis. No Undergraduate students will be accepted.


If applicable, please also indicate in the "message to tutor" field whether your doctoral work is currently ESRC funded.
