Ethical Reasoning Instruction in Non-Ethics Business Courses: A Non-Intrusive Approach
Wilhelm, William J.
Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, v52 n3 p152-167 Fall 2010
This article discusses four confirmatory studies designed to corroborate findings from prior developmental research which yielded statistically significant improvements in student moral reasoning when specific instructional strategies and content materials were utilized in non-ethics business courses by instructors not formally trained in business ethics. The objective of the research was to develop non-intrusive methods for instructors not trained in ethics to teach business ethics in their content courses. The measurement of moral reasoning used in all of the research studies was the revised version of the Defining Issues Test, the DIT-2 (Rest, Narvaez, Bebeau, & Thoma, 1999). (Contains 3 tables.)
