eSTEeM Community Event: Responsible scholarship and gaining approvals for your project

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 - 14:00 to 15:30
Via MS Teams


Mark Jones and Sue Pawley


In this session, we will consider the responsibilities of scholarship researchers to be ethical and to protect participant data. The Open University has approval procedures that help ensure that all research, including scholarship research, meets these obligations. Starting from a consideration of research design, we will guide you through the processes involved to help you gain the approvals that your project will need.

Learning objectives

To understand:

  • The responsibilities that project leads have towards participants in scholarship projects
  • The Student Research Project Panel (SRPP) application process
  • The Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) review process
  • The correct procedure for storing and handling data – Data Protection


This session is open to all OU STEM colleagues. Please visit My Learning Centre by Friday 8th December to register.
