Thanks to everyone who participated in our discussion on integrating ethical codes and concerns in multiple disciplinary teams!
A big thanks to everyone who participated in our round table discussion on integrating ethical codes and concerns into multiple disciplinary teams. Designers Samantha Dempsey and Ciara Taylor, creators of Ethics Quest and the Designer's Oath, shared some of their experiences working with diverse stakeholders in thinking through complex ethical issues and the role games can plan in helping to facilitate these sometimes hard conversations. Participants shared their experiences from a diverse number of backgrounds including education, gerontology, health care, and even how to start conversations about end of life care with family members. Take-aways included the need to navigate power differences that exist in these discussions, the need to create a safe space where individuals feel comfortable sharing their ideas and views, and ways to motivate a wider discussion of these issues in the Illinois Tech community and beyond.
