This Instructor Module is intended to support educators who use the corresponding student module, "Being an Ethical Job Candidate," m14468. It provides pedagogical information for instructors based on the experience of the authors. The goal is to promote collaboration and sharing of best practices in ethics education and to encourage other educators to engage in EAC (ethics across the curriculum). This module is being developed thorugh the National Science Foundation funded EAC Toolkit Project (SES 0551779).

      Module sources

    • IEEE Professional Employment Guidelines for Engineers and Scientists published by Stephen Unger in Controlling Technology: Ethics and the Responsible Engineer .
    • Cases based on situations presented to the author in Practical and Professional Ethics classes at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez.
    • Case found at Online Ethics describing a surprise drug test during an interview. This case has been revised here to incorporate other student experiences.

Instructor resources(sharing best practices in eac!)

This section contains information related to the above referenced Student Module. The intent and expectation is that the information contained in this section will evolve over time based on the experiences and collaborations of the authors and users of the Student Module and this Instructor Module. For example, the authors, collaborators or users can provide the following kind of information (mainly directed at or intended for instructors).

Module-background information

Where did this module come from? (e.g. A workshop, news story, based on a movie, etc.) What condition is it in? (e.g. first draft, needs editing, publishable, etc.) How has it been used in the past? (e.g. in classroom, workshop activity, ethics debate, etc.) Other relevant or interesting details

This module comes from students who have shared their experiences as job candidates during practical and professional ethics classes held at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. It also comes from an attempt to disseminate and apply the Guidelines for Employment for Engineers and Scientists developed by the IEEE and published in Stephen Unger's book, Controlling Technology . (See complete references below.)

Content objectives

The content objectives presented below come from the AACSB Ethics Education Task Force Report. A similar list could be developed using ABET a-k criteria.

    Content objectives

  • Ethical Leadership (EL) : (a) “Expanding…awareness to include multiple stakeholder interests and…developing and applying…ethical decision-making skills to organizational decisions in ways that are transparent to…followers.” (b) “Executives become moral managers by recognizing and accepting their responsibility for acting as ethical role models.”
  • Decision-Making (DM) : “Business schools typically teach multiple frameworks for improving students’ ethical decision-making skills. Students are encouraged to consider multiple stakeholders and to assess and evaluate using different lenses and enlarged perspectives.”
  • Social Responsibility (SR) : “Businesses cannot thrive in environments where societal elements such as education, public health, peace and personal security, fidelity to the rule of law, enforcement of contracts, and physical infrastructures are deficient.”
  • Corporate Governance (CG) : (a) “Knowing the principles and practices of sound, responsible corporate governance can also be an important deterrent to unethical behavior.” (b) “Understanding the complex interdependencies between corporate governance and other institutions, such as stock exchanges and regulatory bodies, can be an important factor in managing risk and reputation.”
