We’re developing innovative methods to approach complex moral problems.
The KIE’s Ethics Lab is a design lab that uses ethics and design to find innovative ways to approach complex moral problems. Our character-based ethics learning works to educate women and men for others, and our direct-impact work aims to make a difference in the world beyond the gates. The lab’s work includes flagship project-based ethics courses at Georgetown, outreach and consulting aimed at transforming ethics learning in classes all across campus, and workshops and products designed to help educators from secondary to graduate level bring Ethics Lab’s hands-on approach to ethics in their own classrooms.
Ethics Lab aims to not just experiment, but to share what works. In addition to educating Georgetown students, the lab is developing ways to take its methods even farther afield through educational toolkits, professional development sessions, and interdisciplinary workshops and modules from its growing library of creative pedagogies.
