Teaching Good Judgement: Tried and True Methods for Incorporating Ethics into Any Class

As a component of our university’s core values, “ethical behavior” is a concept that warrants our attention as educators on the CWRU campus. In order to promote the “culture of global citizenship” identified in our mission statement, we must help our students engage in ethical and moral deliberation. Yet, a qualitative study of our undergraduates’ moral development conducted in 2015-2016 shows that we are failing to meet crucial aspects of these goals. Therefore, it is important that we reevaluate how we are approaching ethical, moral, and civic learning in the classroom. To begin, we might consider how this learning can be implemented in any classroom in any discipline at any time. This discussion will be facilitated by Jeremy Bendik-Keymer, Beamer-Schneider Professor in Ethics and Associate Professor of Philosophy.

Join us for that discussion on Thursday, March 7, 2019 from 11:40 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen Building (at the corner of Euclid and Adelbert) immediately on the left if you enter through the Euclid Avenue revolving door.

Pizza lunch, sodas, and water will be provided at this session. To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend this session by sending a message to ucite@case.edu.
