to

online.

They thought it would look the same. They thought they would just upload their lectures…

I just wanted to shout,

Less Sugar Poster

Challenges: Some challenges require students to post their poster on the wall and groups come around and vote on the posters. The groups are each given a rubric and told, “You  should not vote on your poster.” They usually then ask, “Should not or “Can not?” I then leave it to them to act ethically. Here is a sample poster challenge. We used the Case Study question from http://ethicsops.com/LessSugarMarketing.aspx.

Altruism and Egoism Question Posed

Question Posters: These are placed on the wall in the room at the beginning of each class. The students are asked to vote with a sticky note. Throughout the course they are then asked to go back and reevaluate how they voted once they have more information or from ethical issue to ethical issue.
