Submit Revised Ethics Form
(May 7, 2019)
Time consuming. Do we really need it?
A failure to gain consent at the 8th May Committee would mean a wait until the 17th June Committee or Chair’s action.
Some students are unable to collect data as they need to wait until the revised ethics form get approved
We cannot mark the outline as a formative part as there is only one submission point of 100% of the marks for this module according to portico.
Students need help to revise ethics forms while staff are away
Some students submit the form without supervisors' signatures
It takes too long to allocate supervisors
Supervisors read students' proposals for the first time and refuse to sign-off the ones that are not fully-developed
Students don't understand what is research ethics
Some students and staff are away
How the dissertation module works this year
The timeline and identified issues
Students don't watch the video tutorials
Lack of a marking standard. Plagiarism, etc.
