Developing Ethical Geography Students? The Impact and Effectiveness of a Tutorial-Based Approach
Healey, Ruth L.; Ribchester, Chris
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v40 n2 p302-319 2016
This paper explores the effectiveness of a tutorial-based approach in supporting the development of geography undergraduates' ethical thinking. It was found that overall the intervention had a statistically significant impact on students' ethical thinking scores as assessed using a Meta-Ethical Questionnaire. The initiative led to a convergence of scores, having a bigger impact on those who had a relatively low score prior to the intervention. Interestingly, the approach had the biggest impact on students who self-identified as physical geographers. Unlike some previous research, there was little evidence of difference between male and female students.
