Ethical Reasoning for Everyone (TD2139)

Wed, 27 Sep 2023 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Description: Have you ever second-guessed a decision you made? Perhaps there's one that makes you feel a little bit unsettled even now. Sometimes the nagging feeling that remains is a sign that we wish we'd done something differently.
This interactive workshop offers participants an opportunity to revisit past choices and evaluate new decisions using a series of questions that can work independently or with a group.The 8 Key Questions help us to expand our thinking beyond our ethical blind spots and make better informed decisions, hopefully leaving that nagging feeling far behind!
Participants will use one to two scenarios to learn and apply the 8KQ. Additionally, they will leave with a tool that can be useful in future personal and professional decisions.
Participants are invited to become more involved with ethical reasoning activities after experiencing this introductory session.  

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Identify their individual ethical preferences
  • Understand how preferences can create "blind spots" in reasoning and decision making
  • Learn about the Eight Key Questions ethical reasoning framework
  • Apply the 8KQ to one or more scenarios
  • Reflect on and write about one decision or situation where ethical reasoning may be helpful
