Outlining a serious moral game in bioethics


Christen, Markus; Faller, Florian; Goetz, Ulrich; Müller, Cornelius (2014). Outlining a serious moral game in bioethics. EAI Endorsed Transactions on Ambient Systems, 14(3):e4.

Abstract

Our contribution discusses the possibilities and limits of using video games for apprehending and reflecting on the moral actions of their players. We briefly present the results of an extended study that introduces the conceptual idea of a Serious Moral Game (SMG). Then, we outline its possible application in the domain of bioethics for training medical professionals such that they can deal better with moral problems in medical practice. We briefly sketch major components of a SMG Bioethics. The contribution should demonstrate how such an instrument may improve psychological competences that are needed for dealing with various ethical questions within healthcare. The contribution is an intermediate step of a project that aims at actually creating a SMG for training in moral competences that are needed for putting bioethics in practice.
