Welcome! This site exists to assist students planning research projects in developing the skills and materials necessary to the ethical conduct of research with human subjects.
The site contains video modules that include case studies, accounts from the field, expert advice, and demonstrations. They are organized into six categories relevant to the ethical conduct of research with human subjects – informed consent, protecting information, public and private space, international research and ethical image making, and skill-building – that can be accessed via the menu bar above. Each category page provides a link to the individual videos together with a short description of its content. Clicking on a link in a category page will lead to the video together with a longer textual description of its content. In addition to being grouped by category, videos are tagged; clicking a tag will link to a page containing all videos bearing that tag. The site also provides links to written resources and templates.
We encourage you to explore the site. You may want to begin by clicking on a category about which you would like more information to see what videos are available. You can also click on the link below labeled “All Modules” if you would like to see all the videos on one page.
These videos were developed for use by students and their advisors and in the classroom and are available to all, following the provisions of the Creative Commons license with which each is tagged.
