Hello everyone, very nice to meet you, and welcome to the philperc! I’m one of your trusty Team: Ethics bloggers (we need color-coordinated shirts or something).
Every quarter, I teach bioethics to pre-med and science students, and every quarter, I ask them to take seriously the ethical obligations that come from power imbalances (especially those between doctor/patients and scientists/non-scientists). With the recent conversation floating around about the difference between “teachers” and “professors” (see here and here) it is clear that there is still work to be done in thinking about our own roles.
One idea that often gets lost when we talk about pedagogy is the very real disrespect our topics and methods might present to those in dialogue with us (especially our students, who stand in asymmetrical relationships with us).
