Ethics Across the Curriculum

Time: 11/4/2004 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Miller Hall 160

Ethical dilemmas –in everything from who gets a flu shot to fair political campaigns—are an omnipresent part of modern life. There is a growing movement in higher education to help students develop their ethical reasoning skills, both within their major and as part of a liberal arts education. This workshop explores how lessons on ethical dilemmas can be infused into different disciplines and curricula. Brian Burton (Management), Kathleen Kitto, (Engineering Technology), and Janice Lapsansky (Biology) will share how they have used ethics in their classrooms to facilitate dynamic, thoughtful, student discussions and papers. Handouts with ready-made ethical dilemmas you can adapt to your classroom are included. The workshop is part of the “First Thursday” series in teaching and learning, and is sponsored by the Center for Instructional Innovation and Teaching-Learning Academy. It’s free and no registration is required.
