This course covers the dilemmas and challenges that researchers face during the course of research from planning through to publication. The aim is to assist researchers in navigating the ethical issues that can arise. The course includes a component on online research and use of social media in view of the changes that the Covid-19 epidemic has entailed for research design and procedures in many settings. This is an interactive course; it will include a discussion of ethical and non-ethical research as well as participants’ experiences to inform the discussion. The course is oriented to individuals who work in academic or professional research organisations or in NGOs that do applied research and run practical programs. The course can accommodate 15 participants. Participants will receive a course pack with relevant literature and guidelines.
