The development of an online e-course in human research ethics

Machin, Tanya ORCID: and Brownlow, Charlotte and Jackson, Annmaree (2019) The development of an online e-course in human research ethics. In: 2019 Australian Psychology Learning and Teaching Conference (AUSPLAT 2019), 13-15 Sept, 2019, Melbourne, Australia.


Understanding the requirements for human research ethics is an important attribute for psychology students, with many Honours and Postgraduate students requiring ethics approval to conduct their research. However, students can have difficulties in understanding and applying appropriate knowledge to their ethics application. The purpose of this research was to establish an open access online ethics course for research students. We specifically focused on student understandings of the values and principles of ethical research including the risks and benefits of research methodology, recruitment and data collection, collection, use, and management of data and information, research merit, integrity, and monitoring requirements, and the communication of research findings. The findings from the evaluations phase of the project will be presented and discussed.
