RD Workshop 4: Research Quality: Ethics, Quality and Validity in different research designs

25 August 2015, 16h00 – 18h00, Environmental Learning Research Centre, Room 20

Regardless of whether research involves human respondents or non-human animals, it needs to be conducted ethically. This session will explore ethical guidelines for conducting defensible research. It will also consider ethical conduct as a key feature of quality in research. Additionally the session will discuss different orientations to ensuring validity, credibility and trustworthiness in research. These criteria are often dependent on the type of research design, the research paradigm being worked with, and the context in which the research is being conducted. Theoretical perspectives informing the research also shape validity or trustworthiness concerns, as do issues such as the internal coherence of a study.
