SEM: Ethics


What is this course about: This course is designed to help participants to better understand what ethics means, recognize and critically analyze ethical issues, including those present in development work, and practice distinguishing and making more ethical decisions.

What will you get out of this course: You will develop or refine your own ethical framework/compass, and learn to apply it to wide range of situations both in the context of development and beyond.

How we will learn: We will utilize readings, exercises, guest speaker talks, and case studies among other learning methods.

Why is this subject important? Ethics is about knowing what is right and wrong. While it is a simple concept to define, it is much harder to apply in complicated and complex situations, and is something we will continue working our entire lives.
