Supporting and transforming the community of dispute resolution practice by providing leadership, direction and growth.

ADRA Workshop - 27 April 2017 - Primary Ethics

ADRA will be convening five one-day workshops in 2017. These workshops will cover special issues in dispute resolution.

Workshop Topic

On Thursday 27 April 2017, Kelby Mason will present on Primary Ethics classes in New South Wales.

Primary Ethics is a not-for-profit organisation and the sole approved provider of ethics classes in NSW public primary schools. By providing training in facilitation and access to detailed lesson materials Primary Ethics enables community volunteers to deliver ethics classes to children.

This workshop will cover the content of day 1 of the two day training for volunteer ethics teachers. It will include: ethics as a branch of philosophy, approaches to ethical thinking and techniques for facilitating ethical discussions, such as encouraging a range of views, keeping discussions focussed and using questioning to build a better understanding of an ethical issue. There will be opportunities to practice the style of facilitation use in ethics classes.

Participants are invited to consider how facilitating ethics classes could help them strengthen and broaden the listening and questioning skills used in their own practice. For those interested in volunteering, this workshop will count towards volunteer training.
