Week 4

  • Ethical Issues in Research

    Ethical Issues in Research

    Ethics is an important part of research. It’s the driving force that protects participants, researchers, and institutions before, during, and after a study. Many elements of a study need to be considered.

    Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) provide oversight of human subjects’ research and help ensure that ethical principles are upheld. Issues such as research with vulnerable populations, potential coercion of participants, and conflicts of interest are all considered with an eye to doing no harm. Jordan, Tiana, and James are impressed with all the steps taken to ensure that everyone involved in research projects is protected and that proper protocols are followed.

    This week learn about ethical conduct in research to help shape our understanding of credible, honest, equitable research.


    • Discussion: Discuss the ethical considerations that go into designing and executing a research study.
    • Quiz: Take the quiz.
    • What You Need to Know: Read about ethics in research.
  • Discussion Overview


    Each discussion in this course has a couple of questions that may ask you to apply your readings, use new skills, identify additional outside sources, reflect on how content applies to you, or give you an opportunity to talk about what interests you most. You may choose one to respond to each week or you could post your own content related to the concept for the week.

    Discussion Question

    This week is about ethical considerations that go into designing and executing a research study. Please post something to the discussion board related to the content covered this week.

    Note: Do not create your post as a reply to the pinned post. Instead, use Yellowdig’s Create option to create a new post. Label your post with the hashtag for the week (#Week4) so that others can sort posts by the week’s topic.

    Here are some ideas for your post to get you started:

    • Say you were interested in studying a potentially vulnerable population, like children or prisoners. What ethical considerations must you take into account to conduct your research? What provisions could you put in place to help ensure your study receives IRB approval and meets the ethical standards set by your discipline?
    • After completing the readings for this week, share which reading most interested you or you felt was most immediately relevant to your own professional or academic career.

    Response Guidelines

    As you respond to your classmates, share your experiences and anecdotal feedback regarding their posts. How have your personal experiences resonated with their ideas? What can you add to their ideas, building upon the connections you have made to the material so far? Consider exploring the features of Yellowdig, such as your ability to embed videos and pictures, create polls and videos, use hashtags, love or like a post, and so on.
