llinois Tech's Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions (CSEP) invites Lewis College of Human Sciences faculty, staff, and alumni to volunteer judges at the Upper Midwest Regional Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition which will take place on Saturday, November 17, 2018, at Illinois Tech's Mies (Main) Campus. Teams from all over the Midwest will be competing, and it should be a day of lively discussion and debate!
During an ethics bowl, teams are presented with ethical dilemmas which they have had the opportunity to study and analyze and are asked questions about the cases. They are then judged on the quality of their analysis of each situation. The event is competitive but not adversarial—teams can agree but for different reasons. The format allows for teams to respond to each other, and to respond to questions from the judges; the goal is to raise students’ ethical awareness and sensitivity, encourage collaborative thinking and promote civil discourse.
The day will start at 8:30 a.m. with a judges' orientation and run until around 4:30 p.m.
If you are interested in volunteering or have further questions, please contact Kelly Laas, CSEP librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to share this information with anyone who might be interested in participating in this event.
Ilinois Tech will be hosting the high school ethics bowl regional competition on January 26, 2019 as well, and your participation is welcome at one or both events!
