VanSandt, Craig V.
Journal of Management Education, v29 n3 p475-488 2005
This article presents a novel approach to teaching business ethics to college students by relying on well-known aids to learning new, complex, and/or abstract material. The primary purpose of this article is threefold: (a) to explore some of the reasons why learning the basics of moral philosophies is relatively difficult for many students; (b) to review some of the proven methods of helping students learn complex and abstract concepts; and (c) to introduce a specific method that the author has used to help students more effectively learn about the most widely used moral philosophies.
