Learning to Apply Ethics in Situational Decision Making 


Introducing a Free to All Educational Website 

This free to use educational website was based on Dr Shiva Sivasubramaniam's idea of providing a freely available portal to students, teachers/lecturers and professionals. The information and Youtube videos used in these pages are under Creative Commons Attribution, non-commercial (CC BY-NC). The author used freely available resources to produce case-study based learning and teaching tools. The website was developed in 2022, by his student, Mr. Dimitrios Kouroutsaltis, funded by student partnership in educational development programme of University of Derby’s [On-Campus Internship Scheme (OCIS)]

About the Website

This page aims to help students, lecturers, and teachers in learning/teaching the importance of ethics in situational decision making in different subject areas or professions."Ethics governs everything we do". A collection of real-life and fictional scenarios are provided to discuss, debate and decide how to apply ethics in those situations. These scenarios were collated  from different publications, videos and collections, all of which are fully acknowledged. Although many of these case studies revolve around medical ethics, a few examples from other fields are also given. Users are expected to use the thought provoking questions at the end of each video clips to learn about ethical scenarios, principles, and applications. Should wish further assistance, please contact the author who is happy to offer you free workshops.
