1. What conflicts of interest have you personally experienced in personal or professional roles?
2. If you perceive a potential conflict for yourself, what are some ways you might ensure that this conflict doesn’t lead to unethical behavior for you and others?
3. When have others’ conflicts of interest impacted how you or those you know were treated?
4. What types of policies can or do organizations implement to try to reduce conflicts of interest or their costs?
5. Why do you believe conflicts of interest are so pervasive in society? Why don’t we take more steps to avoid them?
6. Why is it so hard for individuals to recognize their own conflicts of interest, and how is this impacted by behavioral biases?
I think it would be good to have about 4 true/false or multiple choice questions and then, 2 open ended ones that make them think and apply the data to their own lives. (no way to check if they did the 2 open ended ones.) I don't like the idea of punishing them if they get it wrong on the true/false or multiple choice questions! Maybe just giving them the answer and then cycling them through the question again.
