Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: I really believe: no knowledge is knowledge unless it is personal . . . water boiling at different temperatures at different elevations . . . it also raises the question that science is perfect and has one answer . . . it's not, even something like boiling point of water has no true answer . . . that is how I invite them to bring themselves . . . reflect on who you are . . . that brings the place because people have experience in the place . . . in the families, so they talk about their family . . . growing up in Hawaiʻi for example would be a phrase people would use from time to time . . . so the place does creep in from that perspective . . . students pick four or five ideas or concepts to learn, and they describe the concept, and how that makes sense to them,so they might have to give an example to explain that from their personal experience, so whenever we're talking about management practices they can talk about their experience, their parent's experience, their teacher's experience, most of them have temporary sort of part-time job experience, so they're able to bring their work experience . . . in the old days I used to say: 'if you only explain the concept, you are a B, if you bring your experience to now exemplify it, you're now an A . . . Ethics is not sitting on the fence: you have to decide, that means you have to be on this side of the fence, or that side of the fence, so you can argue on the one hand pro-life, on the other hand pro-choice, but when you get pregnant, or your girlfriend gets pregnant, you have to decide what you are going to do with it . . . Ethics requires that we take a position.
