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 and 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

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."

Food Sustainability in and Beyond the Classroom: The Florida Heritage Foods Project (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Food Sustainability in and Beyond the Classroom: The Florida Heritage Foods Project
Author: Ann Thebaut
Author: Sarah Cervone
Abstract: Inequality, food choice and sustainability are inextricably linked because choice is based on power, and people without power have fewer opportunities to make healthy and sustainable food choices. This is evident in a diverse state like Florida where nearly one out of four minority residents live below the poverty line, and minority residents are nearly twice as likely to die from chronic diet-related illness than white residents. The Florida Heritage Foods Project at (presenters’ home institution) is a student-centered, project-based learning initiative that aims to increase access to fresh and local food for low-income residents by linking local food to local culture. Heritage food lessons in humanities courses guide students toward generating public education materials that 1) provide information on the nutritional and cultural value of specific nutrient-dense crops that are easy and inexpensive to grow in a Florida home garden, and 2) provide quick and easy recipes to promote the consumption of healthier foods. Student-generated artifacts have been adopted by (a local university’s) Health Street program, which aims to reduce disparities in healthcare, and by (a local county) K12 Farm-to-School program. By connecting the classroom to public service, instructional artifacts in the Florida Heritage Foods Project empower students to take a proactive role in promoting more sustainable and just food systems in their community. This joint presentation by two faculty members representing different disciplines will provide concrete ideas for teaching environmental ethics that pertain particularly to the topics of food security, community engagement, and justice.
