This workshop will focus on practical ways for faculty from all disciplines to pursue course goals related to ethical deliberation in Paideia II. Over the course of two afternoons, we’ll explore ways of getting key elements of moral decision-making into focus, look at how these familiar ethical and moral questions are related to disciplinary perspectives and to general ways of thinking about ethics, and exchange specific ideas for stimulating fruitful reflection, discussion and writing about ethical issues in Paideia II. We’ll also discuss particular questions, challenges and concerns raised by workshop participants and past instructors. The workshop aims to benefit both potential and experienced Paideia II instructors, and to enhance existing courses as well as the creation of new ones.
