Researcher Development Programme (RDP): Research Governance and Ethical Approval Processes

Research Governance and Ethical Approval Processes

Wednesday 4 December 2019, 10:30-11:50

This is an introduction to the University’s Code of Practice for the Conduct of Research which is where we lay out the expectations of how researchers should engage with the research process. The nature and purpose of ethical approval will be considered so that you appreciate why ethical scrutiny of proposed research is necessary and what those conducting such scrutiny are looking for. In addition, the requirements of the formal processes and procedures in relation to research ethics will be introduced. The session reflects national benchmarks including those of the UK Research Integrity Office, UKRI and the Concordat to Support Research Integrity.

Researcher Development Programme (RDP): Research Ethics and the Approval Process

Research Ethics and the Approval Process

Tuesday 19 November 2019, 12:00-13:00

The session will begin by attempting to de-mystify research ethics. It is a commonly held misconception that research ethics requires considerable specialist knowledge (for example, of the kind moral philosophers have); this is not the case. As a consequence, the session will focus on practicalities by outlining the structures, policies, procedures, documentation and timescales about which it is important for those seeking ethical approval for their research to be familiar.

Researcher Development Programme (RDP): NVIVO for beginners

NVIVO for beginners

Thursday 14 November 2019, 13:00 – 14:00

Have you thought about using NVIVO for qualitative research? This session will introduce how NVIVO can be used for managing large amounts of data at its most basic level. It will provide an orientation to the basic NVIVO interface and explore how the data-coding-analysis-interpretation process of qualitative research can be supported by NVIVO using an example from a live project. Together we will reflect on what NVIVO may, or may not, be able to do for qualitative researchers.
