Support the IIT Ethics Bowl Team as they compete in the Upper Midwest Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl on Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 9:20 am – 4 pm in the Stuart Building Main Auditorium on Main Campus. IIT will be competing against 19 other teams from universities throughout the Midwest.
The Ethics Bowl combines the fun of a competitive tournament with a valuable educational experience for undergraduate students. In the ethics bowl, a moderator poses questions to teams of three to five students. Questions may concern ethical problems on wide ranging topics, such as the classroom (e.g. cheating or plagiarism), personal relationships (e.g. dating or friendship), professional ethics (e.g. engineering, law, medicine), or social and political ethics (e.g. free speech, gun control, etc.). Each team receives a set of ethical issues in advance of the competition and questions posed to teams at the competition are taken from that set. A panel of judges evaluates the answers.
If you have questions or are interested in being a judge or moderator in the competition, email Kelly Laas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
