Ethical dilemmas confront all educational researchers, and the literature is replete with example and with administrative ways of processing them.  This seminar focuses upon real-life and inclusive examples of dilemmas, looking at how they might be resolved.  It draws upon different perspectives, both methodologically and theoretical. Presentations are based upon a recent book, Ethical Dilemmas in Education: Considering Learning Contexts in Practice, with an emphasis upon

  • Researcher reflexivity, wellbeing and ethical safety
  • Starting with self
  • Jolts in the margins: probing the ethical dimensions of post-paradigms in educational research
  • The hidden lives of ethics

Following brief presentations on each of the above topics, there will be a discussion on ethical dilemmas encountered by the researchers present, both as presenters and in the audience.
