This is a webinar done for the Council on Economic Education. Bookings for this workshop include both the people who attended live, and those who watched the entire recording asynchronous on CEE’s website. CEE collected complete information for people in both modalities.

Help your students to think critically about ethical issues and understand why ideas of right and wrong are vital to economic decision making.

In this collection of free online lessons, students play the roles of doctors and patients, demonstrating the motives of self-interest, duty, and character in economic transactions and learn how their bias affects their decision-making. They also consider whether their city should allow a casino to be built by considering arguments from different perspectives.

Register here, through the national Council on Economic Education.
