Research Methods – Conducting Socially Sensitive Research

  • Description

About this Course

About the Course

In this course, Professor Nele Demeyere (University of Oxford) explores conducting socially sensitive research. In the first lecture, we think about research ethics and the moral responsibility of the researcher to ensure participant wellbeing. In the second lecture, we think about how research ethics guidelines came about and some specific modern guidelines which safeguard participants. In the third lecture, we think about research integrity and the wealth of considerations that must be made in each aspect of a study, to ensure high quality research is being conducted. Next, we think about the replication crisis and look at some key findings which have failed to replicate in recent research. In the fifth and final lecture, we think about some ethical implications that psychological research can have on individuals, groups, and society.
