Robert Landenson, founder of Ethics Bowl, speaks at Roundtable on Brainstorming Ideas on Education and Deliberation

Earlier this month, emeritus professor Robert Ladenson was invited to speak at a roundtable discussion organized by the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues that focused on brainstorming ideas on education and deliberation. Dr. Ladenson discussed how the Ethics Bowl has been used around the country by high schools and universities to help students not only to learn about important ethical issues, but also deliberate and discuss these issues in the form of a competition.
