Teaching and Learning Ethics – Ambiguity as a Catalyst for Learning in Digital Educational Ethics Games

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

In the first part of this presentation, Dr Nardo gives an overview of the FLI Ethics Education project, which has been running since 2019. In the second part of the talk, she proposes a new theoretical framework for the design of digital educational ethics games. She draws from her recent experience of designing such a game, and focuses on the challenges encountered when applying existing theoretical frameworks for educational games. She contends that existing design frameworks fail to account for the ‘wickedness’ of ethical problems – i.e. their inconclusive, complex, and sometimes inherently contradictory nature – as they are centred around consequentiality and consistent game-system feedback to players’ actions.
