Nurturing Our Ethical Sensibilities as Learners, Teachers, Researchers and Supervisors

Seminar Objectives:

Ø  To share good practice on how we nurture our own and our students’ ethical sensibilities.

Ø  To acquire skills of reflection and practical tools for ethical thinking, reflection and analysis useful for our fields of teaching, research and student support.

Ø  To explore understanding of the ‘every day’ ethics generated by different kinds of research, much of which does not require ethical review.  

Ø  To appreciate the ethical challenges posed by emerging kinds of research including technologically based research methodologies, ethical leadership and decision making, big data mining etc.

Ø  To explore and discuss diverse ethical frameworks, which can better enable us to assess the ethics of new practices of research inquiry.
