Booking is open for a new workshop provided by the Cambridge Higher Education Studies Research Ethics Committee.

The workshop will provide an introduction to the ethics application process for colleagues interested in developing and eventually publishing their teaching, learning or other educational projects. We will:

  • provide an overview of ethical principles underpinning research with human participants
  • clarify the difference between evaluation, evaluative research and research projects
  • discuss common ethical issues related to 'insider' or practice-based research
  • illustrate aligning appropriate methods with research questions and anticipated participants
  • demystify the ethics review process
  • offer practical tips about what you need to prepare for your ethics application

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice about their potential higher educational research projects. All are encouraged to bring draft project ideas, and participants will be shown some exemplar applications.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 9 November from 12.30-13.30 at the Student Services Centre.
