Encountering Ethics

A two-year faculty and curriculum development project on incorporating ethics into non-humanities fields.

This project will address the critical need to keep humanities content strong in community college education. The primary goal of the Encountering Ethics project is to integrate humanities concepts and artifacts into courses across Sinclair and expose students to the humanities in fields traditionally regarded as “outside the humanities.” A secondary goal is to help students make strong connections between their coursework and their learning through humanities artifacts. The project is designed to help students apply knowledge of ethics to real world context by understanding and engaging in the contemporary world. To accomplish this, faculty participants will create a module within an existing course that uses literature, philosophy, history, or art history to explore the theme of ethics as it relates to an appropriate segment of the course. The audience for this project is 25 full-time Sinclair Community College faculty who teach in a wide range of non-humanities based disciplines.
