Htm#unfinished (accessed 12 October 2005). Chapter 3 Everything’s ethics Practitioner inquiry and university culture Marilyn Cochran-Smith and Susan L. Lytle For two decades, we have worked with each other and with a wide array of students, inquiry communities, and school-, program- and university-based colleagues in order to conceptualize and engage in research about teaching, learning and schooling. We use ‘practitioner inquiry’ as an umbrella term that encompasses a number of inquiry approaches and genres.

Where an ethics committee is overly focused on risk to the exclusion of benefit, this creates a different kind of risk – that of over-regulation and strangling of research itself. If we accept that research is beneficial to society as a whole, then society has a vested interest in research taking place. Thus the role of an ethics committee is not merely to minimise risk, but to promote and support ethical research. This is undoubtedly a challenge for ethics committees. On the one hand, a committee that is too lenient and insufficiently rigorous in its consideration of research ethics might lead to researchers’ treating the process as a joke.

This clearly has the potential to create conflict between researchers and ethics committees. Critical reflection on one’s own practice is part of being a professional in any field. It is how professionals work out if what they are doing is effective, whether their practice is in the best interests of their clients. This has always been the case in medical research. It is not unusual for doctors to experiment on their patients, try things out without knowing if they will work, or test new drugs and treatment regimes.
