Teacher and Researcher: What Kind of Partnership Is It? Ethical Implications.
Sabar, Naama
It has been argued that qualitative research demands a special ethics code because of the special relationship between researcher and subject. Ethical aspects of teacher-thinking research were examined by asking 12 teacher-thinking researchers in Israel to participate in an interview on ethical issues of teacher thinking. Interview transcripts were analyzed and analyses were validated by two expert judges. With this information, a semistructured questionnaire was developed to explore ethics in teacher-thinking research and the relationship between researcher and teacher-subject. The questionnaire was completed by 25 participants at the 1993 International Study Association on Teacher Thinking. A wide range of opinions was apparent, so it was difficult to draw conclusions. In the Israeli community females and younger researchers appear to be more sensitive to ethical issues, but this is not the case in the international community. It is suggested that the code of professional ethics regarding the relationship between professionals and clients in general is not applicable to teacher thinking research, in which the teacher is more like the researcher's partner than like a client or a patient. Two tables present study findings. (Contains 34 references.) (SLD)
