This module describes and prepares students for the ethics bowl activity that is carried out in some of the professional ethics courses at the University of Puerto Rico – Mayaguez Campus. An earlier version of the activity is described in a report for the IIT EAC Summer Institute Workshop. This updated version is being developed through the NSF funded EAC Toolkit Project (SES-0551779).

Main content ( module / exercise / case )

Module introduction

The "Prerequisite link" included in the upper right-hand corner of this module opens the module content located at the IIT Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions . This file, "Report on Ethics Integration Projects," was prepared by Dr. Jose Cruz-Cruz as the follow-up to a workshop he attended at the Illinois Institute of Technology on ethics across the curriculum. Directed by Michael Davis (Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions), the IIT EAC workshop was funded by the National Science Foundation.

    Module activities

  1. Open the link to the IIT Ethics Bowl Packet
  2. Read the section beginning on page 2, "The Ethics Bowl at UPR - Mayaguez"
  3. Read the cases in the Appendix from page 8 to page 12.
  4. Prepare a position paper on each case. Since the cases terminate at a decision point, make a decision and justify it in terms of reversibility, harm/beneficence, and publicity. Then carry out a global feasibility analysis. For more on the tests and a decision making framework consult the module, "Three Frameworks in Ethical Decision-Making." See link above.
  5. Prepare for the Ethics Bowl debate by studying the procedures and scoring criteria presented in the report at IIT.

    The ethics bowl can be divided into eight stages

  1. Team 1 receives its case and gives an initial presentation taking an ethical position and providing an ethical justification.
  2. Team 2 makes a commentary that critically analyzes Team 1's presentation.
  3. Team 1 responds to Team 2's commentary.
  4. Fifteen minutes are alloted for the judges in the peer review teams to ask Team 1 questions. After this, the judges/peer review teams score the first half of the competition without announcing the results.
  5. Team 2 receives its case and makes an initial presentation in which it states and justifies its decision or position.
  6. Team 1 gives a commentary to Team 2's presentation. They can take a counter-position as well as reveal weaknesses in Team 2's position and justification.
  7. Team 2 responds to Team 1's commentary.
  8. Team 2 answers questions from the judges for 15 minutes.

Media files

Four Media Files open key documents for the Peer Reviewed Ethics Bowl held in Corporate Governance classes at UPRM. The first file provides a presentation that will help to orient you to the Ethics Bowl. The second and third files contain the score sheets which also serve as rubrics assessing your achievements in the debating criteria of (1) Intellligibility, (2) Integrating Ethical Concerns, (3) Feasibility, and (4) Moral Imagination and Creativity . The final Media File provides Ethics Bowl rules modified to fit the peer review format.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
