The AUTEC Secretariat co-ordinates a range of workshops, seminars, drop-in sessions and other services to assist researchers with understanding and exploring ethical issues relating to their research.
The Research Ethics Advisor in collaboration with the AUTEC Faculty Representatives is available at North, Millennium, and South campuses to:
No appointments are necessary. One thing to be aware of in relation to the drop ins is that someone may already be receiving advice when you arrive. Just let the Research Ethics Advisor know you have arrived and he will let you know how long he is likely to be.
A schedule with times and locations for the Drop Ins is here but please check the weekly schedule above for what's on in the current week as things don't always go to plan.
Face to face advisory meetings are available by appointment. Researchers are encouraged to initially contact their AUTEC Faculty Representative with enquiries about their applications. You are also welcome to email the Kaitohutohu Matatika Rangahau | Research Ethics Advisor to make an appointment to meet in WU408 to discuss ethical issues and applications.
Further assistance for student researchers needing help with research or language skills is offered by Learning Advisors.
Workshops are also provided throughout the year exploring and discussing particular issues and providing advice about completing ethics applications.
In addition, seminars or workshops are available on request for groups or classes. Please contact the Research Ethics Advisor to arrange this.
The Kaitohutohu Matatika Rangahau | Research Ethics Advisor gives a number of presentations. The presentation graphics are headings of topics rather than detailed notes. Some will be made available here for your reference.
The Researcher Development Online Tool is available to all AUT researchers and allows you to search through over 500 research events, resources, and activities. These range from broad conferences to discipline-specific research seminars, online subject guides, PBRF workshops, help with methodological issues, ethics, funding applications, and much more.
