MyBioethics application aims at teaching bioethics to all those who are interested in learning more about real bioethical challenges. To generate data on the app’s potential benefits to the users, we empirically study how the use of the app impacts users’ deliberative and moral competencies. In our experimental research setting, we will study whether the use of the app increases users’ ability to justify their decisions in moral dilemmas, search for the common good and recognize various ethical principles related to moral dilemmas. We will also make various changes to our research setting to study the impact of different design choices.
MyBioethics application has built-in research capabilities that are used to advance empirical exploration of moral intuition, ethical deliberation, and decision-making. With the approval of the authors of selected research instruments, we work to uncover interesting connections between relevant psychosocial constructs and detectable trends in the dilemma answers.
