Educational Ethics During a Global Pandemic: A Discussion Group & Research Study for Educators

Educational Ethics in a Global Pandemic Flyer with Session InformationYou’re invited to participate in an online discussion group about the ethical challenges educators are facing during this pandemic. Our goals are to give space to teachers, teaching assistants, school administrators, guidance counselors, and other school-based professionals to think together about the ethics of our work in these complex times, and to add to professional development and research on these topics. Each 6-8 person, 90-minute session will be facilitated by a professor of educational ethics. Once you've signed up via the form (below), we will send you a Zoom link 1 day before your session. This is part of an ongoing research project based at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
