Watching ourselves watching: Ethical issues in ethnographic action research
MacColl, Ian, Cooper, Roslyn, Rittenbruch, Markus, & Viller, Stephen (2005) Watching ourselves watching: Ethical issues in ethnographic action research. In Proceedings of the 17th Australian conference on Computer-Human Interaction: Citizens Online: Considerations for Today and the Future, ACM Digital Library & Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (CHISIG) of Australia, Canberra, Australia, pp. 1-4.
In this paper we explore some of the ethical issues associated with conducting Ethnographic Action Research (Tacchi, 2004; Tacchi et al., 2003) for understanding and facilitating distributed collaboration. Ethnography and action research are increasingly popular qualitative approaches to researching computer-supported collaboration and we are applying them together in a project within a distributed research centre. We identify ethical principles applied to the conduct of research in Australia and we briefly describe a number of ethical problems that arise due to the nature of Ethnographic Action Research.
