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.

This was an excellent course for me! The content of the course is appropriate for any person intending to undertake research in a professional and ethnical manner. I have learnt a lot of things that I used to do differently in research.I therefore, strongly recommend this course for any person most especially students who are underating research for their undergraduate and post graduate studies. It provides hands on skills and knowledge in doing research, with very good materials, videos, practical exercises and opportunity for reflection.

The course has been very useful to me. As a researcher, the thoughts which i had earlier, had to map with a professional out think... and the entire course supported my thoughts well and finally the quiz clarified the few doubts and now i wish to recommend my peer to take up this course, for learning the people ethics, while researching. The case studies were truly useful and I deem it a privilege to jot down my ideas, in the comment session too.

This is an excellent introductory course to understand the ethical issues while conducting a research. Both experienced and novice researchers would get benefit from this course. Apart from the short videos, the downloadable materials are also useful to understand the topic. Course quizzes are also very helpful to assess the learning. The delivery of the educator Dr Natasha McKeever as well as her feedback in the quizzes are very excellent.
