COMPLETED WORKSHOPS

1. Ethical Practice and Electronic Communication: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

This workshop will apply Strom-Gottfried’s Six-Question Model to ethical decision-making and practice in the context of electronic communication. This session will provide a space to step out of our automatic attachment to our phones and other electronic media to consider the intersection of practice and ethics as they are often mediated by electronic media. Participants are encouraged to bring a one paragraph description of an ethical dilemma that can be addressed in a process of “testing” the decision-making model.

Following the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate a six-point ethical decision-making model
  • Apply this model to practice dilemmas centered around electronic media
  • Articulate a plan for ethical electronic communication in their work settings
