Proposal Title

Ethical Decision-Making in Teaching and Learning

Proposal Abstract

Too often faculty enter the semester/classroom with a staid toolkit of resources; without considering the ethical ramifications of teaching and learning. The main objective of this roundtable is to introduce participants to a conceptualization of ethical decision making that could be extremely useful in higher education. It can work as a simple process to be utilized in classroom decision making or around the college conference table; implemented in 10 minutes or extended over a semester. It can allow the professor to ethically examine all facets of their curricular and pedagogical planning, and to assess how those plans have progressed. The roundtable will introduce some decision making scenarios for participants to wrestle with, and a model for an ethical approach to address the scenarios. Attendees will leave the session with a challenge to examine decision making from an ethical stance and the tools to meet that challenge.
