This short, interactive skills-based workshop, runs over two separate half-day sessions, and is delivered by FHM staff with experience as members of the FHM Research Ethics Committee. The training complements the Researcher Development Framework for Research Governance and Development (Vitae, 2017). 


Practical Research Ethics:

Participants need to attend both half day interactive sessions, which are set one week apart to allow the completion of an individual practical task.



Dates:              Session one: Tuesday 14th November  2017:      1.00 - 4.00pm


Session two: Tuesday 21st November 2017:     1.00 - 4.00pm

The aim of this workshop is to enable postgraduate research students to gain skills in practical research ethics when applying for ethics review for their doctoral research fieldwork.  The workshop, based on a well-established existing postgraduate research ethics module, will enable students to develop their ‘ethical mindset’ when designing fieldwork including understanding concepts of research ethics governance, identifying key ethical issues relevant to their specific research area and considering effective ways to address ethics at each stage of the research.  All participants will have instruction in where to locate and how to complete the full ethics application relevant to their research. 

Outline content:

  • Basic concepts of research ethics governance

  • Developing an ‘ethical mindset’ appropriate for your research field

  • Identifying key ethical issues and requirements in your research

  • Locating and working with the relevant ethics review application forms

  • Writing supporting documents

  • Ethical data management from collection and analysis to storage and deletion

  • Ethics in dissemination
