Ethical Dilemma Video Series

The Parr Center for Ethics and TED-Ed are jointly producing a co-branded ethical dilemma video series, drawing on UNC Philosophy’s world-class expertise in ethics and the Parr Center’s commitment to nourishing and fostering ethical reflection across the lifespan. The aim of the series is to provide the public with an ethical “toolkit” via a collection of engaging videos on fundamental ethical concepts, distinctions, and methods. Each video is accompanied by a set of pedagogical resources that enable further reflection and curricular integration. Check out our video library below!
