Presentation and scenarios for discussing research ethics with humanities students.
These are the documents and forms used in order to conduct the OpenLIVES research in an ethical manner. The research was carried out at the Universty of Leeds as part of the module "Discovering Spanish Voices Abroad in a Digital World" in 2012/2013. The form applying for ethical consent to the University of Leeds Ethics Committee was completed by the tutor well before the start of the course and was used by the students as a learning resource. The advert looking for participants was designed by Lazara Morgan. The text of the email sent to possible participants was drafted by Jeran Richardson and the consent forms were drafted by Jessica Abreu and Alex Steel. All the work was revised and edited by the tutor. Attribution: University of Leeds.

This activity is currently being used in the module SPPO 2650 "The Spanish regional Melting Pot: the same old History?" at the University of Leeds. This module is a Level 2 very popular option for all our BAs in Spanish. Students make their contributions via discussion boards in VLE Blackboard. The activity was first used in the module "Spain: Political Decentralisation and Integration into Europe" (SPPO 2370/1) in 2009 but has been updated since them. It is aimed at facilitating students’ interaction and co-operation in the process of understanding national and regional identities in contemporary Spain. It fosters transferable skills such as intercultural communication, analytical skills, critical skills, the ability to work as part of a group, commercial awareness, negotiating skills, online communication skills, leadership and spirit of enquiry. The activity also offers students the possibility to reflect upon ethics and responsibility in a research and communication professional role. It contains a word document with the activitiy in Spanish for 2012-2013, a word document with a learning reflection sheet to do in the classroom after the activity (this was incorporated in response to feedback received from employer) plus previous versions of the activity in Spanish and English.
