This workshop is for education scholars – people who are engaging in any form of research or evaluation in education. Many of us wear multiple hats – we are clinicians, educators, teachers, scholars, leaders, and advocates. These multiple hats mean that we will, at times, engage in scholarly activities like evaluating a program or conducting research related to our everyday work.
All forms of research and evaluation have an ethical obligation and thus require attention to ethically important moments, beyond the REB approval. For example, how much do you push and probe your interview participant if they seem hesitant to share? Is it okay for you to lead the evaluation of a program you also lead? Who should be an author on a manuscript resulting from your scholarly work? These types of everyday ethical issues can be navigated through a reflexive approach, which we will explore in this workshop.
Participants will learn about the differences and relationships between procedural and practical ethics and about reflexivity in education research, evaluation, and scholarship.
