Chris McCart, assistant professor and coordinator of the outdoor education program at Black Hills State University, was awarded a “Young Scholar” award by the Association for Moral Education. The scholarship assists in expenses to travel and present at the 2011 Association for Moral Education International Research Conference in Nanjing, China.

McCart’s research presentation, “Moral Development and Outdoor Ethics Education,” explores the development of outdoor ethics through moral development theory. Her research tied in with the conference theme of “Cultivating Morality: Human Beings, Nature, and the World.”

“One of the best parts was being able to visit with researchers in this field of study from all over the world – it really expanded my thinking,” McCart said.

In 2008-2010, McCart was awarded an Archibald Bush Leadership Fellowship and a two-year leave of absence to begin work on her doctorate degree. She has worked with the outdoor education program at BHSU since 2004.
