Teaching Assessment in an Online Environment: Ethical Conflicts, Concerns, and Solutions
Thursday, June 22 11:50 AM-12:10 PM Location: Bell
Abstract: Many recent revisions to various Codes of Professional Ethics contain significant updates related to technology, assessment, and the online teaching environment. A common tactic is to attempt to integrate technology into every aspect of ethical practice. This presentation examines functional approaches to teaching evaluation and assessment at a distance, the ethical conflicts and concerns created by that methodology, and approaches for resolving common ethical issues. Examples of the impact of new standards, from specific counseling-related ethical codes, on teaching assessment in an online environment will be discussed. Specific effective instruments that may be useful in the online assessment educational process will also be reviewed.
