The Canadian Ethics Bowl: Ethics of argumentation and argumentation about ethics

This workshop discusses a team event that is both collaborative and competitive, where teams of grade 9-12 students analyze and discuss ethical questions that focus on current ethical issues—social, political, economic, scientific, cultural, historical, and beyond. It is a debate of ideas whose structure is pedagogically enhanced to foster the development of critical and creative thinking skills and attitudes, based on respect, listening, and careful reasoning. The talk will also discuss how the Ethics Bowl has developed in Canada and BC in the last few years, and the opportunities that lie ahead for educators.
