Ethics Tour 2007
Another Way to Team Teach
I present my experience using a model of team-teaching where a philosophy class “tours” the campus, participating in other classes for ethical discussions throughout the semester. Although prompted by low enrollment in my ethics class, this technique allows for an engaging interdisciplinary experience for the students while offering a low- or no-cost alternative to traditional team teaching where two faculty members teach one class. I describe the experience my students and I had during the inaugural tour, and make several suggestions for improvement.
