Practitioner, supervisor, instructor, researcher, administrator—whatever our present role(s), we observe scenarios in which ethical principles are clearly either confirmed or compromised. We also observe situations in which some question exists as to whether a person acted in the most ethical manner. As professionals committed to uphold the ethical precepts of our disciplines and as audiologists and speech-language pathologists, we can, in the course of our professional development, consider it quite useful to reflect on ethics. While the wisdom of our mentors and models contributes toward this end, participation in in-depth studies of ethical considerations adds new depth to our appreciation and application of ethical principles. This article overviews one approach—the use of case studies—we can use to enhance our professional development. Administrators who are interested in ethics education can use these ideas as the foundation for seminars and in-service events and, in fact, can use this process to address ethical questions that arise in the workplace.
