Description:

While ethical issues are faced by all social researchers the ethical issues posed by some digital platforms, digital spaces and mediated interactions can raise distinct ethical challenges (and opportunities).

 

This one-day course will consider what it means to ethically collect data and to work with potentially sensitive data when using digital research tools and when researching digital spaces and objects.  It will introduce researchers to principles underpinning ethical practice in digital contexts and will explore the complexities of managing issues of informed consent, anonymity and confidentiality in and through digitally mediated environments.

Course Timings: 11:00 - 16:00

 

This course is suitable for researchers at any career stage who wish to gain an understanding of ethics in digital research.
