Research-led teaching

 

Doing their own research gives students ownership over their learning, leading to high levels of engagement inside the classroom and out. But human research ethics review is an obstacle that makes many teachers give up on the idea of teaching through research. Read what teachers and administrators across Australia have to say about the barriers to a research-led curriculum.

Many researchers see the ethics review process as bureaucratic hoop-jumping. When institutions approach ethics in terms of capacity-building, researchers are more likely to see the process as a substantive engagement with ethical thinking. Online ethics training is a good way to scale up outreach and build capacity in research ethics for both staff and students. Here we've compiled a list of ethics training resources for teachers and students.

Model ethics forms

 

When institutions have dedicated forms for research-teaching projects, it convinces teachers that human research is possible for students, expected and valued at their institution, rather than a struggle with bureaucracy which only the most determined will attempt to overcome. Here we've gathered examples of dedicated ethics review forms for student research from across Australia.
