Event details

Ethics & Integrity in HE Research Applications in practice, not application forms

Friday, 18 October 2019

This event forms part of the Newer Researchers network events for continuous professional development. It also acts as a foregrounding event to the Annual Conference on the 10th December, the theme this year is What does it mean to be an academic citizen in 2019?

This event is designed to provide a professional development opportunity for researchers to discuss ethical issues and questions of integrity, which go to the heart of the practice of HE research and being part of the HE research community.

The focus will be on issues of conduct in the practice of research, and how to be an ethical researcher and academic citizen with integrity. It will consider the issues, topics and thought process which go on in conducting and being part of research, which has ethics and integrity at its core, as well as moving through the space of wider academic citizenship, dissemination and applications.

In short, this session covers thinking about ethics and integrity in a way which falls after or outside of the conventional CPD focused on designing and completing applications for ethical approval.

A series of five papers on different issues and challenges, from a range of topics and perspectives, and researchers from different experiences, will form a core part of the day. Providing inspiration and think pieces for how to approach different issues.

Participants will then have the opportunity to engage in small groups discussion, and gain peer support, and are encouraged to bring issues or topics they want to wrestle to the session. The aim will be to facilitate a safe space to workshop how to approach questions of ethics and integrity to planning and thinking to about research’s topics, methods, conduct, disseminations, and implications.

The day will be facilitated by Samuel Dent, Nottingham Trent University, including contributions from:

  • Professor Nicola Ingram, Professor of Sociology of Education, Sheffield Hallam University
  • Dr Sara Camacho Felix, Assistant Professor -International Inequalities Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science
  • Dr Jessica Gagnon, Research Fellow, STEM Equals Project, University of Strathclyde
  • Dr Ciaran Burke, Associate Professor in Higher Education, University of the West of England

Please note as indicated by the title this workshop will not cover or focus on ethical approval application forms or provide specific advice on how to complete these. We advise you to seek the advice of your own institutional or departmental ethics co-ordinator for this.
