Understanding some basic factors influencing ethical decision making, including "hot" vs "cold" cognition, the role of metacognition. An awareness of resources in Maine to help develop a robust ethical culture.


This presentation will touch on ethics. We will explore the culture-bound nature of ethics, which will help us understand that "ethical behaviour" is not a monolithic construct. We will also touch on principles that enhance ethical decision making, including concepts of "hot" and "cold" cognition, and the role of metacognition in managing and responding to ethical challenges. We will delve into factors that influence how we respond to ethical quandaries. Finally, we will touch on local Maine resources to assist with developing a strong and adaptive ethical culture.
