Event description

Description

Dr Debi Fry and Dr Ailsa Niven at the Moray House School of Education are pleased to host this seminar to showcase innovations and best practices in ethically involving children and young people in research through approaches that promote rather than diminish the dignity, rights and wellbeing of children. The full-day seminar will consist of:

  • A keynote presentation by Dr Ginny Morrow (University of Oxford), 'Reflections on the ethics of social research with children and young people: an overview'
  • Roundtable discussions led by UoE research staff – each highlighting a different ethical challenge they have encountered in research with children and walking through their ethics choices, and
  • A poster display of key ethical challenges from current PhD students

The seminar aims to provide a space of University of Edinburgh researchers and students to critically engage with key ethical issues pertaining to involving children in research and to share best practices. By the end of the seminar, participants will have:

  • Understood the key tenets of the Ethical Research Involving Children (ERIC) Charter
  • Heard about current research being undertaken involving children by staff and students at UoE
  • Critically engaged with key ethical issues for research involving children
  • Connected with other researchers at UoE who are engaged in conducting research involving children, and
  • Learned about the current policies and resources available for researchers

This will be a great platform to bring together researchers from different disciplines working on research involving children and to share learning about key ethical issues. We would be delighted if you could join us!
