Research ethics is the focus for MethodSpace in March, and you can find the unfolding series of original posts, interviews, and resources here.

Ethical research involves much more than a pre-study review or forms to explain how the study adheres to the institution’s rules about protection of human participants. This webinar featured a cross-cultural conversation about two key questions: How do I identify critical ethical issues for my research? and What are the practicalities of responding to ethical issues as they arise?  Dr. Poth raised these questions in her Research Ethics Little Quick Fix book, and Dr. Chavez has lived them in her research, and research supervision, in a complex and fraught setting.

View the MethodSpace Live webinar with Natalia Reinoso Chavez, from the Universidad de la Sabana in Bogotá, Colombia and Cheryl Poth, from the University of Alberta  Edmonton, Canada.
