Graduate and Early Career Scholar Seminar in Teaching Ethics

The 2018 Graduate and Early Career Scholar Seminar is a 2.5 hour workshop offered in conjunction with the 2018 APPE Annual Conference on Thursday at 1pm.

This highly interactive seminar is intended for graduate students and early career scholars who are currently teaching classes in ethics (for less than three years) or who have plans to do so. It is designed to boost confidence, confront pedagogical issues and provide philosophical comfort. Topics to be covered include determining goals for the teaching of ethics, pedagogy for personal and professional development, and appropriate assessment. Prior to the seminar, participants will be invited to help shape the session to meet individual needs.

Enrollment is limited and on a first come basis.

Deni has taught ethics teachers from Kindergarten to mid-career level (and everything in between) in the highly successful Theory and Skills of Ethics Teaching Summer Seminar, in the M.A. in Philosophy, Teaching Ethics Emphasis at the University of Montana, and through various APPE programs.
