CHI 2020 Course

Dealing with Ethical Challenges in HCI Fieldwork 

About the course

This course aims to provide attendees with the theoretical background and practical examples that can assist them in tackling the ethical implications they may face when conducting field trials of mobile technologies or lab-based experiments with vulnerable users. This will be grounded in common principles transcending national or institutional guidelines. The learning focus will be on core principles rather than on the specific “letter of the law”, thus allowing attendees to better contextualize the general ethical principles to the particular discipline or country where they conduct their own research.
