Professor Avril Loveless presented this seminar which explored ethical dilemmas raised by student research on Monday 9 February 2015 at the University of Brighton.
This seminar was an interactive session in which all staff were welcome to discuss, share and ponder scenarios in practice as supervisors of students’ work that raise ethical dilemmas in undergraduate, masters and doctoral enquiries. There was also the opportunity to discuss ways in which the School might offer formal and informal support in giving feedback.
