finding (and using) resources #ocTEL week 4

I choose to look for resources relating to distributive justice and healthcare, since I’ll be teaching on this topic in a couple of weeks. I looked on Merlot (as an example of an educational resource bank) and TED (as an example of a more open-ended repository), since I’d not used either of these before.

I couldn’t actually find a very specifically relevant resource on my topic on either site. Both had fairly general resources on justice (with the perennial Michael Sandel featuring heavily). So far, not so useful. I did explore both a bit more generally, and found potentially useful things, but nothing that I felt I could use as is without adding context or background for the students, or adapting to suit purposes.
