Intense Investigations of Ethical Dilemmas
During this launch of Quest II, students are engaging in creative learning activities as they also explore a second Signature Question. Quest II courses encourage students to:

  1. Become aware of their own perspectives and the frames of reference they use to make ethical decisions.
  2. Recognize the complexity inherent in ethical decision-making.
  3. Compare and contrast the ethical reasoning of divergent groups or individuals on issues central to course content.
  4. Articulate their reasoning.
  5. Question their assumptions.
  6. Explore the ethics of information literacy (plagiarism).

Student Explorers talk about Ethical Reasoning in Quest II
