In this Sociology/Psychology session, Dr Craig Allison, a leading academic from Solent University, will run an interactive skills and insight workshop for students on Research Methods – Focus on Ethics.

With great knowledge comes great responsibility. Social Scientists including psychologists and sociologists often find ourselves in position of authority and power over participants in research or patients that we work with or even our friends and family thanks to knowledge that we hold on social influence and learning. As professionals, we are tied to strict codes of ethical conduct, with rules we have to abide with.

In this interactive session, we will discuss the fundamental principles of ethics, where they come from and why we have them. We will look to apply these principles to topical areas such as research you may wish to conduct as part of your own studies and interactions within online environments.

The session will develop skills and approaches to support students in their Sociology/Psychology studies and future aspirations.
