This event introduced an exciting new 3D Animated Educational Game created as part of an HE Academy Development Grant awarded to Dr Suzy Jagger of University of Roehampton Business School.

Guests previewed and gave feedback on the innovative new web-based game for teaching business ethics. Attendees were united by their interest in teaching ethics, online learning, innovative pedagogic frameworks, digital learning tools or business ethics more widely; this project will illustrate game scenarios in which business students can hone their ethical decision-making skills within a realistic real-world context.

The final game will be available as a free online resource as well as forming part of the Roehampton Professional Ethics course at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

It is hoped that this revolutionary new way of engaging business students will propel business ethics to the front of mind for future entrepreneurs and business decision-makers as well as potentially changing the way that business programmes are taught.

Guest speakers included Carmel de Nahlik and Guy Bohane who discussed the issues in teaching business ethics and Judith Irwin from the Institute of Business Ethics.

The game was introduced at an event on Tuesday 11 June at Southlands College. For more information on the project or to get involved, email Suzy Jagger.
