Honors Teaching Goodness
IDSC 480- CRN Honors Teaching Goodness
J-Term 2013 – TTH 1:00-4:00
Professors: Tonia Bock (Psychology) and Heidi Giebel (Philosophy)
In this seminar we will attempt to discover whether moral goodness can be taught, and if so, how it can be taught most effectively. To that end, we will explore and analyze (1) the accounts of moral goodness and moral education found in the writings of some classical figures in both the Western and Chinese philosophical traditions, (2) the theoretical and empirical work of developmental and educational psychologists, and (3) the content and results of several moral education programs and strategies.
