Ethics in Space! (and here too) (Stage 4, Stage 5, Stage 6, TAFE Students)

Explore first-hand the role of ethics in leadership, science and technology as the commander of a sci-fi settlement in a choose-your-own-adventure game


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Good science is ethical science. But how do we actually decide what’s right and wrong? Is it based on logic, or feelings, or both? Understanding and thinking about ethics has never been more important to science and technology, and in this virtual lesson students are invited to face their own moral dilemmas…using video games!

Join psychology researcher and philosopher Kip Elder in exploring how and why we make tough ethical decisions, via the game ‘Ethos 2514’. Students are put in the role of Commander of New Atlantis; a newly founded space colony set up as humanity flees across the stars. Faced with a hostile environment and increasingly tough decisions about science, engineering, life and death, students must discover their own ethical beliefs.

Following the game, students can compare their choices using the anonymized data collected from their playthroughs and discuss what influenced their decisions in an open discussion led by Kip. Sharing insights from his research across multiple domains of cognitive and health psychology (including curiosity, belief, and intergroup dynamics), Kip can shed light on the brain and body’s role in influencing our decision making, and how ethics is applied in science.

Presenter Bio

Kip Elder is a psychology researcher (UNSW) and currently undergoing training as a clinical psychologist (UWS).

After initially training as screenwriter and working as a writer/producer for television, he decided to retrain as a psychologist in 2018. Since then, he has done experimental research across multiple areas of psychology, including placebo/nocebo effects, science communication, event cognition, and most recently interest and curiosity. He is particularly interested in how the brain uses stories (beliefs about the world) to regulate the body.

Kip also has degrees in Philosophy and Screenwriting, he has bike-packed around the USA and Australia, is a good cook, and has recently taken up gardening.
