Questions and ethical dilemmas within a design-based research project

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Paper published in Proceedings

Abstract

This paper outlines ethical issues surrounding a Design-based Research (DBR) project to explore the value of questions in digital environments. The context dictates a broad yet defined approach which is not confined to a single entity. Striking a balance between scope and focus has been problematic as the variables are too complex to justify a scientific analytical methodology. We discuss implications for the selection of our research question as well as consequences for our implementation strategies. The humanist foundation underpinning DBR provides inclusiveness together with the required rigor. The ethical dilemmas outlined provide a critique for determining the authenticity of our project.
