2020 Two--Year College Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: 2020 Two--Year College Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl
Author: Ann Thebaut
Author: Jason Frank
Author: Greg Wright
Author: John Garcia
Abstract: Santa Fe College, in collaboration with other two-year institutions across the country who participate in Ethics Bowl, developed a unique model for the 2020 Two-Year College Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl that successfully met the challenges of hosting a virtual competition. SF's model incorporated both asynchronous and synchronous competition components that were designed to put competitors at ease in the virtual world and promote those aspects of Ethics Bowl that distinguish it from the traditional Speech and Debate model, namely, collegial and civil discourse. It allowed teams to spend more time crafting their presentations through a critical, self-evaluative process that promoted deeper understanding of not only the cases, but also of team dynamics. Although it was recognized that the asynchronous aspects of the proposed model took away some of the spontaneity inherent in the traditional face-to-face Ethics Bowl competition, participants agreed that the hybrid model for a virtual Ethics Bowl had pedagogical and technical advantages. Going forward, it is a model worth considering, even in a post-Covid world, as it promotes outcomes difficult to achieve in a face-to-face environment, namely, greater participation (due to decreased cost) on the part of two-year colleges, as well as a heightened sense of community among two-year colleges across the country.
Date Range: 10/16/2020 thru 11/21/2020

Creating Culturally Meaningful Learning Experiences for Students through Food (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Creating Culturally Meaningful Learning Experiences for Students through Food
Abstract: In this session, Santa Fe College language professors, Eva Casanas and Marcela Murillo, along with SF philosophy professor, Ann Thebaut, will each share their innovative pedagogical strategies for educating students on the cultural and ethical significance of food and sustainability. Eva and Marcela will discuss how, through research and creation of posters focused on foods from different cultures, SF students of Spanish and Chinese learned not only about food production and consumption, but also about the cultural significance of food. Ann will describe how ethical issues of food and sustainability were considered in the context of a thought-provoking, fast-paced ethics improv competition--a "Sustainability Slam." Audience members should find this to be a fun and engaging session!
