How can we employ intervention strategies to encourage ethical behavior, and when are these interventions necessary? Many of our scholars are interested in how we can translate our research into interventions or strategies to influence moral behavior. Whether that be in healthcare settings, in the workplace, or through pedagogical means, those studying moral interventions are finding ways to consider real-world implications of their research, and how it can be applied in practical settings.
Civic Education for a Serious People
“Dr. Christopher Beem (Associate Research Professor and Managing Director, McCourtney Institute for Democracy) presented in progress work related to democratic virtues and decision-making called “Civics Education for a Serious People: 2 Proposals”. This meeting built from our previous meeting, in which we convened several different researchers to discuss complementary approaches to studying political polarization, with the aim of cultivating new projects.”
Consortium Meeting on Political Polarization
During this meeting, faculty and graduate students had some great discussion surrounding our multidisciplinary interests in political polarization.
We are hoping that this meeting was a valuable starting point for considering grant applications, long term projects, etc.
