Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of teacher education students' participation in online dilemma discussion on moral reasoning scores. Students were presented with either hypothetical or real-life ethical and moral dilemmas and then required to discuss their solutions to the dilemmas via an online bulletin board. The Defining Issues Test (DIT) was administered pre- and post-test. Significant gains in DIT scores were found.
