This workshop will also be offered on Thu, 14 Nov 2019, 8:00 AM-9:30 AM in SSC.


When designing and delivering course content in higher education, it may not always be intuitive for instructors to be aware or mindful of their own ethical decision-making processes. This workshop presents a guided discussion in which participants will explore various ethical perspectives on curricular design and delivery, using JMU’s Eight Key Questions. Special attention will be given to the Key Question “Responsibilities - What duties and/or obligations apply?”

Facilitator: Breyette Covington, Ph.D.

Partner: JMU Ethical Reasoning in Action

Faculty participants will make progress toward these program outcomes:

  • Appreciating pedagogy—the art and science of teaching and learning—as a significant higher education endeavor, and
  • Identifying factors that influence pedagogical choices.

Faculty participants will make progress toward this teaching outcome:

  • Helping faculty to create and deliver courses informed by ethical decision-making processes that correspond to JMU’s Eight Key Questions.

We want this program to be welcoming, accessible, and inclusive for all of our participants. Please reach out to us at cfi@jmu.edu or (568-4846) with any considerations (e.g., disability, wellness, cultural, dietary, etc.) you want us to know about.
