The project, Developing new approaches to ethics and research integrity training through challenges posed by Creative Practice Research is an University of Melbourne, VCA_MCM led research project investigating new ways of supporting ethical know-how and creative practice research for higher degree research candidates, supervisors, academics and ethics administrators.
Our research team comprises key academics at a mix of urban and regional universities who offer creative research practice PhDs. The team profile demonstrate the significant experience of the team in the management, administration and teaching of graduate research programs. Each team member brings specific skills and experiences to the project, knowledge of the issues facing HDR students in the academy and knowledge of the broader real world environment.\
The project has been designed with a number of information gathering tools, events, and critical interactions that inform the development and building of resources and tools, and the progressive evaluation process to be undertaken. The information gathering tools include online survey, focus groups, interview, and case studies. Pedagogically, the planned workshops in 2016/7 are experiential, proposition based, active practice learning. The planned conference in September 2016 is itself a platform to experiment with activities and ethical practice challenges. The toolkit will endeavour to collate in one place the challenging, situational ethical practices and know-hows that creative practice presents.
The project is registered as a multi-institutional project at The University of Melbourne (ref no: 1545690.1)
