PSYC71-401: Honours Thesis 1: Research Seminar and Ethics

Description

This research seminar series is aimed at assisting students in the planning and design phases of their thesis. Students present their research ideas to other students in an informal setting, and receive feedback on their proposed methodology and the implementation of the study. In the second part of the subject, students are introduced to the APS Code of Ethics and the complimentary Ethical Guidelines. Each week students are presented with a series of ethically problematic scenarios to which they discuss possible solutions and a brief plan of action. Attendance at seminars is compulsory.
