2013-2014 Ethics Project
Dr. Cutter developed a wide variety of educational materials that included a syllabus for a new Ethics of Life and Health (PHIL3130) course taught online for the first time at UCCS in fall 2014. Materials include a series of 15 reflections exercises and a short case study to use in the course. Because of discussions with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Pre-Med students must complete PHIL3130, increasing the number of students at UCCS that will be exposed to ethics education based on principles. With this new course and continued teaching of Practical Ethics (PHIL3180), students are learning principle-based ethics from three members of the faculty. Dr. Cutter presents an ethics case study to students at the Gateway Program Seminar session ("Unreality").
