Abstract

A simulation was created to emulate two Racial Ethical Sensitivity Test (REST) videos. This mixed-methods study aimed to affect ethical sensitivity of preservice and inservice science teachers to racial and gender intolerant behavior in school settings; by leveraging immersive powers of simulations. The REST is a reliable measure of five videos depicting gender and racial intolerance. The fictitious Hazelton High School virtual environment was created for two REST videos. We examined a simulation designed to promote science educator professionalism and development of dispositions. Thirty-two preservice science education students and 31 inservice science teachers participated. Data collection involved in-simulation and post-simulation interview prompts, and 36 survey questions. Responses suggest a reflective, interactive, personal, and organic environment. This simulation may help increase ethnically defensible responses to gender and racial ethical dilemmas in school settings.
