  7. 7. Rhetoric & Writing Studies Philosophy & Applied Ethics My Pedagogy ● To demonstrate understanding of a philosopher’s thinking, students create chatbots as philosophers who are responding to real current issues. ● Applied ethics is the practical application of moral philosophy to addressing/solving real world moral dilemmas. ● Chatbot creation requires mastery of presenting philosophical theories, valid and sound argumentation, and original thought experiments. ● As a rhetorical exercise, students create chatbots that demonstrate ekphrasis writing that has come to life. ● Ekphrasis, as a rhetorical device, refers to the description of a work of art. It is to represent an artwork in the form of the written language. ● Chatbot creation requires mastery of sensory descriptive writing, visual analysis, and rhetorical expression of ethos (character/credibility appeal).
