When teaching ethics to students,
case studies are a valuable resource. Experts say that when
using case studies to teach, it is most effective to use studies
to which the students can relate. By doing this, you create
a conflict within the students' minds. As a result of this,
they will be prodded to resolve the conflict. This leads the
students to identify the ethical problem at hand, and will send
them on a journey to find a solution. By choosing a problem
to which the students can relate, you create an active learning
environment, which is also a successful one.
