Overview

Ensure your research is up to the highest ethical standards

Research ethics is vital when conducting research with people. Non ethical research may put research subjects at risk and even jeopardise the validity of the findings. As we undertake more and more research using increasingly diverse methods like the internet, it is important to get it right the first time.

On this course, you will learn the principles of ethical research, and how to manage human subject research in sensitive and appropriate ways. You will consider issues like gaining consent, making sure that personal information is handled safely, and recruiting vulnerable participants.

This course is useful for learners undertaking research with people using social research methods such as questionnaires, interviews etc.

The course is essential for undergraduate students completing research for their final year project but it is also suitable for postgraduates and academic researchers.

The course is part of the academic skills courses portfolio at the University of Leeds aiming to improve skills required for academic study.

I have found this course informative and complete. Though I don't work with people, I believe this is a suitable introductory or intermediate course for beginners. It does not deal with philosophical issues but goes straight to practical ethics and that´s what I was searching for. The course provides a lot of external sources of information that greatly improve the learning experience. I strongly encourage fellow learners to join in conversations and share their thoughts in the comments window; that makes the course more interesting as we learn from others.
