Ethics Topics

Ethics Unwrapped has a growing library of educational resources to support ethics instruction across different disciplines. While our materials are broadly applicable to many fields, we have curated them here to offer the best starting point for these topic areas.

What We Offer

To date, the program includes 100 videos with discussion questions, teaching notes, video transcripts, and bibliographies, as well as 55 case studies with discussion questions and bibliographies.

All of our videos are subtitled in Spanish. Case studies and teaching resources will be available in Spanish in June 2017.

Video/Case Study Pairings

Every Ethics Unwrapped video is paired with at least one case study to illustrate the ethics concept in a real world situation. Each case study includes discussion questions and a bibliography for cited information and further exploration.

Topic Areas

If you’re unfamiliar with our resources, you may wish to start with “Intro to Ethics Unwrapped” before exploring topic areas.

Each topic area begins with a description that includes the ethics themes covered by our resources that are relevant to that topic. “Start Here” features three videos and three case studies to begin learning. Additional videos and case studies that are most applicable to the topic area follows. The case studies are curated by academic discipline.

How to Use the Resources

To integrate Ethics Unwrapped into your course, you may wish to show a video in class, assign a video to watch outside of class, or embed a video in an online learning module. Then, ask students to answer the video’s discussion questions or reflect on the issues raised by the video in class.

You may also use videos as a writing prompt. Encourage students to apply the ethics concept illustrated in the video to topics covered in class. Students can dig deeper by reading the related case study (or a current event in the news). Then, ask students to describe how the ethics concept is expressed in the case and/or have them reason through the ethical dimensions presented.

To explore our resources further, watch “related” videos and read their corresponding case studies. Many of the ethics concepts covered by Ethics Unwrapped operate in tandem with each other, so the more you watch, the greater your understanding of ethical issues.
