AbstractThis Instructor Module is intended to support educators who use the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaquez Ethics Bowl activity module. It provides pedagogical information for instructors based on the experience of the authors. The goal is to promote collaboration and sharing of best practices in ethics education and to encourage other educators to engage in EAC. This module is being developed through the NSF funded EAC Toolkit Project (SES-0551779). The module discusses how the Ethics Bowl, a debate-like competition focusing on ethics case studies can be used to get students discussing ethics. It gives the history of the development of this activity, how it has been used at UPRM, learning objectives, and directions of how the ethics bowl can be implemented in different course settings.
