Preparing Students for Thoughtful, Ethical Decision Making

Preparing Students for Thoughtful, Ethical Decision Making

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 | 1:00 PM Central | 60 Minutes

All too often, we hear news items on sobering events resulting from ethical decisions—or the lack thereof. Incidents occur in every discipline and profession, and can have serious, wide-ranging implications. Are we doing enough in our teaching to prepare students to thoughtfully address the dilemmas they may face? This online seminar addresses ways faculty can provide students with skills to identify and contend with ethical matters in specific disciplines and professions, civic life, and as part of the educational process (including academic integrity and interpersonal interactions). We will also discuss ethical considerations for instructors—particularly those new to the profession—around dilemmas they often encounter, including grading, recommendation letters, and boundaries in interactions with students.
