This research-based university in Perth has a strong interdisciplinary focus and a reputation for outstanding teaching and ground-breaking research. With more than 22,000 students and 2,000 staff from over 90 countries, and campuses in Dubai and Singapore, Murdoch embraces free thinking, shared ideas and knowledge to make a difference, and Open Universities Australia is certainly part of that.
This subject will prepare you to take a leadership role in the workplace that allows collaboration in ethical decision-making. The focus is on recognising actual and potential ethico-legal dilemmas in professional practice, and how decisions are made, justified and reviewed. A conceptual framework will be used to explore the decision making process while examining actual and perceived roles, professional values, and communication and collaboration practices when decisions with an ethical and/or legal dimension have to be made.
The assessment component of this subject includes:
(i) Case study analysis involving peer discussion of the two cases on LMS with a final write up for each case study (30%)
(ii) Ethical problem solving essay (40%)
(iii) Contributions to online discussion topics (30%)
Written feedback will be provided on the first three assessments to facilitate student learning and the achievement of unit outcomes.
