Nancy Matchett


In addition to teaching both online and face-to-face courses in philosophy, Dr. Matchett uses her online Center for Ethical Deliberation (CED) to facilitate research, teaching and training on applied and professional ethics. The CED is an interactive tool designed to help users identify the ethical dimension of their choices and deliberate more effectively about how to resolve ethical issues. Matchett has previously taught at the University of Denver, Stonybrook University’s School of Professional Development, Colorado Community Colleges Online, Mesa State College, and the University of Maryland at College Park, and has also worked in the field of non-profit administration, primarily on issues of environmental and consumer protection. She holds a PhD in Philosophy (University of Maryland, 1998), an MA in Philosophy and Social Policy (American University, 1992), and a BA in International Relations (Brown University, 1989); is a certified Peer Reviewer for the Quality Matters online course quality assurance program; and is primary certified as an Individual Client Counselor by the American Philosophical Practitioners Association. Her current research focuses on the nature of ethical deliberation and how patterns of ethical deliberation relate to conceptions of personhood, identity and moral agency.
