Graduate symposium on ethics in education

Bruce Moghtader, Phuong Huynh, Kshamta Hunter and  Lesley Liu organized an excellent, engaging symposium on Ethics and Education last week. I really liked the scope of the engagement, from ancient history and theory, Buddhist, Confucian, Greek & Taoist, to experimental pedagogy to ethnographic reports of affinity space designs for youth peer relations.

I am grateful for the insightful participation of the 601 PhD students! Special thanks to Professor Samson Nashon for helping us work through ethical questions and dilemmas related to research!
