AbstractThis volume, produced from a systematic study undertaken by the Hastings Center on the state of the teaching of ethics in higher education, outlines some of the main goals of ethics education, and gives some advice on how to go about teaching ethics in an undergraduate or graduate setting. The essays cover some strategies for teaching ethics, how to evaluate the progress of students in this area, and give some specific advice on teaching ethics in the fields of medicine, law, and professional ethics. This is one of the foundational works in ethics education, and lays out many best practices for developing both individual instructional methods and institution-wide programs.
