How to Align Measurement and Meaning of Moral Competence

Prof. Dr. Georg Lind (emeritus)
University of Konstanz – Germany

In this workshop I will show how we can align measurement methodology with the meaning of moral competence without sacrificing objectivity and comparability of test scores. I will demonstrate the theory, experimental design, and individualized scoring of the Moral Competence Test (MCT, formerly called Moral Judgment Test).

RAVE: A Skills- and Relation-Based Approach to Moral Character Development

Darcia Narvaez
University of Notre Dame – USA

Tonia Bock
University of St. Thomas – USA

The RAVE (relationships, apprenticeship, village, expertise) model provides an intentional, holistic, comprehensive, empirically-derived approach to moral character development. It is informed deeply by evolution, ancient philosophy and current developmental and learning sciences about what contributes to cultivate human flourishing. Participants learn to apply the four step model to their classroom or workplace, including foster moral expertise development and attending to triune ethics. Handouts will be provided and guidebooks from the Minnesota Community Voices and Character Education project are available.


Bridging local schools and broader communities: Student Community Forums

John Spady
National Dialogue Network – USA

The presentation describes an innovative project of high school students’ analysis, engagement, and insights into complicated social and community issues. While adults give encouragement, assistance, and oversight, students organize themselves into leadership teams to complete goals and learn a generalized process for community engagement. This presentation will describe: (1) an overall theoretical foundation and the process largely designed by students between 2011 and 2015, (2) the general strategy, community outreach, and methods of meaningful engagement, feedback, and reporting, (3) the difficulties and successes students experienced, and (4) the opportunity for expansion of this collaborative model to other schools and communities.
