Transcript of Internet Research Ethics and the Student Researcher

Internet Research Ethics
And the Student Researcher James Porter and Heidi McKee (English)
"The Internet has become essential for researchers--as research site, as data collection tool, as communication venue, as community space, and as publication platform. Every field of study has been impacted by the Internet, and across various fields a common linkage of Internet research has developed." (xvii) Feenberg's Critical Theory of Technology
-We don't choose to use technology
to progress, we choose to use it in
different ways.
i.e. Google Student Researcher
-the amount of data we both find and receive through digital means
creates problems for the student researcher:
Must understand how interface works as well as information literacy Adam D. Moore (Philosophy)
-Data being pushed and pulled Semantic Web Research Interfaces: Begin student research
library vs. Google
Ease of entry vs. understanding Porter & McKee: The whole of our research
process must be ethically grounded Student-Centered view of IRE
- Get students to understand their role as researchers
-Understand the role of Access in research interfaces What interfaces do we use to research online?
How do those interfaces work?
Who is able to use them?

-ground student in research process
before finding sources and compiling info Yelp's Monocle.
The next step to research: augmented reality Andrew Feenberg (Comm) : We embed tech
into our lives and this leads us to the next tech Dag Elgesem (Information technology) : Who has Access?
-Openness of web vs. who really has access
-Yelp only on iPhone 3GS, hidden feature
-Opening of research from gov-funded research Charles Ess (Philosophy) : Access How?
-Physical means and understanding those means
-Do we treat the Internet as writers or writing?
-Yelp/augmented reality : same info, dif. display E.H. Bassett and Kathleen O-Riordan (Information management) : Access to What?
-Wealth of info and types of research
-Yelp : Only uses Yelp database - closed research system
Use in New York vs. here What I hope this does:
Create a space for talking about the "how"
of Internet Research I am interested in this view primarily
for the needs of our students as beginning researchers.

Before they can "do" things with research they must understand the implications of how they do research online and the factors involved. We expect our students to come in with basic researching abilities, so this will hopefully take them to the next level of awareness and ability.
