2020 ETHICS OLYMPIAD PD REGISTRATION PAGE

The 2020 Ethics Olympiads were fully subscribed in May with some of the best Independent, Catholic and Public schools set to discuss some really
interesting relevant topics.....but with the Corona Virus we have had to cancel the event where over 250 teams were registered to attend. Instead
we provided online training workshops in Ethics and the Ethics Olympiad.  

These sessions were aimed at providing coaches and potential coaches with some insights into teaching Ethics and participating in an Ethics
Olympiad. The sessions are now available to any teacher at schools where the school becomes a member of the Ethics Olympiad. Enter your
details below if you would like to join your school as a member.

The training workshops involved four one hour sessions aimed at teachers (Coaches) in schools to help them prepare their students (eth-letes)

WHAT WE COVERED:

  • How to provide your students with an understanding of various ethical frameworks to assist
    them at an Ethics Olympiad.  (1 hour) Wednesday 6th May 4pm Please note we will be
    running this at 4pm NZST, 4pm EST and 4pm AWST.  (SA -ACST will commence at 3.30pm) One
    thing that has been noticeable in conducting Ethics Olympiads throughout Australasia over the past
    few years is the need for better preparation of students to help them recognise arguments that might
    be entertained by those who draw different and reasonable conclusions to their own. We will in this unit
    explore various consequentialist and de-ontological arguments. We will also provide teachers/coaches
    with resources to teach theoretical and applied ethics.

  • How to participate in an online Ethics Olympiad. (1 hour) Thursday 14th May 4pm Please note
    we will be running this at 4pm NZST, 4pm EST and 4pm AWST.  (SA will commence at 3.30pm)
    Schools that are members of the Ethics Olympiad are provided with all the resources they need to run
    an Ethics Olympiad online. These events are different from the face to face Olympiads previously run
    in each capital city. Schools can participate in Olympiads with other schools throughout the world and
    down the street. Extensive resourcing and support will be provided to participants.

  • How to judge a heat fairly (1 hour)  Wednesday 20th May 4pm Please note we will be running
    this at 4pm NZST, 4pm EST and 4pm AWST.  (SA will commence at 3.30pm)One of the features of
    the Ethics Olympiads is the requirement that each participating school provides a judge for the heats.
    Without this provision, the event simply would not work. It is important that a teacher/judge prepare
    themselves for the role so as to be fair to the students on the day. The marking keys and criteria are
    all very clear but there is some value in explaining to teachers what to expect and helping them identify
    stengths and weaknesses and how these might be graded. Participants will also get access to
    resources online.

  • Procedures and tips for students and coaches participating in the Ethics Olympiad. (1 hour)
    Thursday 28th May 4pm Please note we will be running this at 4pm NZST, 4pm EST and 4pm
    AWST.  (SA will commence at 3.30pm) Coaches that have not previously participated in an Ethics
    Olympiad will be unsure about how best to prepare students for the experience. This session will offer
    some mechanisms and resources for preparing students. It will also offer teachers ways to promote the
    Ethics Olympiad in a school community. How can I put a successful team together in the first place?
    How can I best prepare my students to participate in an Ethics Olympiad? This will be particularly
    useful for teachers preparing students for their first Ethics Olympiad. We will again provide teachers
    with resources to use with students in the preparation phase.
