Research Ethics Workshops

Suzanne McMurphy, the Research Ethics Board Chair, is leading a series of 10 workshops in collaboration with the Faculty of Education and other experts. These workshops cover various aspects of research ethics, from practical application in designs to writing application sections. The main goals include enhancing research ethics education and facilitating better communication between researchers and the board during ethics review. Each 2-hour workshop includes 1 hour of toppic discussion, referencing relevant guidelines, and another hour for open consultation with researchers, welcoming community partners as well.
