This section provides a suggestion for a post-class assignment for the purpose of assessing student understanding of the Module. Suggestions for pre-class or in-class assignments are provided in the Exercises section.
The following assignment is proposed to be completed within two weeks after the Module:
Select a media article that addresses an issue related to integrity and / or ethics. Examples might include migration, inequality or privacy, or any topic that would be deemed appropriate and relevant within the specific context. Describe the issue in your own words and clearly demonstrate what the relevant integrity / ethical issues are. Select an ethical theory (e.g. utilitarianism or deontology) and apply this theory to the issue in order to identify a preferred way to guide decision-making. Maximum length: 1,500 words.
