Professor William English Talks Ethics, Public-Private Institutions, and Student-Centered Teaching at Red House Dinner Series
On February 6th, the Red House hosted Political Economist and Ethics professor William English at the second Red House dinner series event of the semester. He has previously worked with the Political Theory Project at Brown University and was the research director of Harvard’s Edmond J Safra Center for Ethics, where he explored the philosophies and sources of institutional corruption. Professor English currently teaches a courses on the Ethical Values of Business and the Social Responsibility of Business.
In conversation with students, English discussed the role of teaching ethics in the business school, and what responsibilities universities have in pursuing ethical thinking and practices. Sharing insights from his time working at Harvard’s Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT), English talked with students about student-centered learning at Georgetown and the competency-based teaching models he uses in class.
Our next Dinner Series event will be hosted in March, and will feature Professor Rosemary Ndubuizu (African American Studies). To be the first to sign up, join the Red House Student Network or keep an eye on our Facebook page.
