Applied ethical theory will be examined through critical analyses of the most common types of theories, including those underlying Aristotelian, Kantian, and Utilitarian arguments as they pertain to professional, discipline, and personal challenges. Moral dead-ends, such as relativism, also will be discussed. Further, the relationship between law and ethics will be discussed. Participants will employ critical thinking to develop reasoned justifications for their judgments on diverse moral issues. Participants will be better able to understand the role ethics plays in their daily lives and in their respective disciplines. In addition, faculty will explore ways in which ethical theories may be introduced in their curriculum. 



 As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify fundamental philosophical ethical theories
  • Identify ways in which ethics may be introduced in the curriculum
  • Recognize and critically analyze the relationship among ethics, culture, religion, law, and society
  • Help students understand how ethical theories apply to the particular discipline they are studying and to contemporary moral and social issues
