Bringing Mission to Practice: It's a Matter of Ethics
Joseph, Thomas
NCSSSMST Journal, v16 n2 p12-14 Spr 2011
In an evening seminar held in the Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA) auditorium, Lisa Anderson-Shaw, Director of Clinical Ethics Consulting Service at the University of Illinois Medial Center, posed a scenario that inspired a thirty-minute discussion of contemporary bioethics, during which speaker and students untangled issues of patient autonomy, utilitarianism, and the Kantian notion of a human's right to unconditional truth. The rich discussion was part of IMSA's "Considerations in Ethics (CinE)" program--a series of nine lectures and small-group discussions designed to advance the ethics component of IMSA's mission. In this article, the author provides background on and describes the Considerations in Ethics course taught at the Illinois Math and Science Academy.
