Abstract:

This paper describes the implementation of a study designed to assess the effectiveness of a dialogue-based Community of Inquiry approach in developing the skills and dispositions requisite for engaging in the processes of rational ethical justification. The intervention study involved approximately 250 South Australian students from a diverse range of social and educational backgrounds. Findings indicate that the program trialled is effective in developing students’ abilities and readiness to engage in the processes of rational ethical justification, and functional, in that it worked well within the constraints of prevailing educational structures.
