Ethics in the Workplace and Thinking it Through

Stephen Beck has a Ph.D. in philosophy from Brown University and has taught at Evergreen since 1997. He teaches broadly in the humanities, with a special focus on ethical, social and political philosophy. He maintains that a central way to improve the clarity of one’s thinking is to improve the clarity of one’s writing.  He also maintains that seminar discussions and guided small-group workshops are excellent ways to develop ideas creatively. So, central features of Stephen’s teaching are emphasis on clear writing, seminars, and small-group conceptual workshops.

Joli Sandoz brings experience as a lifeguard, track and field coach, recreation coordinator, state worker, reference librarian, journalist, public information officer, editor, consultant  – and Evergreen faculty since 1995 – to Ethics in the Workplace. She has taught programs and courses ranging in focus from baseball fiction to disability studies, and from U.S. literature and history to writing for social change. Joli is particularly interested in the roles questions play in learning, in designing and participating in conceptual workshops, and in exploring qualitative research, creative nonfiction and small system design in Evergreen teaching and learning environments.
