Ethics Lab Teaches Design-Thinking and Ethics Education at 2018 SXSW EDU

Georgetown’s Kennedy Institute of Ethics (KIE) and Ethics Lab held an in-depth and hands-on workshop at this year’s SXSW EDU Conference and Festival. The workshop, Design Tools for Creative Ethics Education, introduced educators to Ethics Lab’s latest set of teaching tools developed to tackle complex moral problems in the classroom.

Announcing our Spring 2018 Ethics Lab and bioethics course line-up

We’re excited to announce our bioethics and Ethics Lab course line-up for the Spring 2018 semester. This is a tentative list that will be updated in the coming months, but each of the listed courses below is available for pre-registration. All bioethics courses listed also count towards the bioethics minor.

Showcase draws submissions from across campus

The KIE’s Undergraduate Bioethics Research Showcase, a juried exhibition of student work in a variety of categories and disciplines, features submissions from a surprising array of schools, majors, and class years.

Featured class: Debates in Bioethics

Colin Hickey’s Spring 2015 “Debates in Bioethics” class blends the curricular and the extra-curricular, with case-based learning and an opportunity for select students to compete on Georgetown’s national-champion debate team.

Featured class: Bioethics, flipped

In Travis Rieder’s “hybrid” Introduction to Bioethics, students access lecture content from the KIE’s MOOC online, and save class time for interactive discussion and personal mentorship.
