Ethics of care

The latest discussions on the #rhizo14 Facebook group got me thinking about my “ethics of care” when I’m teaching a class. I had not really thought about it before, so I’m glad for the discussion at this time – as tomorrow I launch a free course (http://shouldiblog.org).

Ethical obligations of instructors in free courses? #rhizo14 #rhizo15
