This training event will be rearranged for later in the semester. Please keep an eye on our website for updates.
This training workshop has been organised by the Data, Communications and New Technologies (DCT) Pathway but is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded students from any of the 7 WRDTP interdisciplinary Pathways.
Social media research raises a series of complex ethical challenges.
In the first part of the session participants will outline, discuss and receive feedback on the ethical challenges they face. In the second part of the session we will explore and discuss some of the ethical issues that may arise when using different types of methods to capture and analyse social media data for research purposes and ways in which they can be addressed. The session will make use of practical examples/cases.
This workshop is designed for students who are developing research designs which involve different methods of collection and analyses of social media data. The workshop will explore the diverse contexts in which participants are/will be developing social media research. Participants will discuss ethical challenges faced in social media research and ways in which these can be addressed.
