Ethics is challenging for all of us, in the workplace and in our personal lives. Part of the challenge comes from the fact that our society has become so complex. A few decades ago, life was far simpler than it is now: work, for example, was often a 9-to-5, Monday through Friday job in a particular setting. Now, for many people, work is far more flexible, often done outside of traditional business hours and sometimes through virtual means. And think of entertainment: Just a generation ago, most entertainment was done through face-to-face interaction (going to the movies, playing card games or video games at a friend’s house). Now, we have nearly unlimited options for entertainment, even virtual reality gaming with people we have never met, even someone in a different hemisphere!
This complexity, while it makes life interesting, also impacts ethics. The more accelerated the development and changes in our society, the more complex that ethical dilemmas become. What seems right to you may seem wrong to another. Additionally, one academic or professional discipline can influence ethical behavior in another discipline. In this assessment, you will consider a complex contemporary issue and describe how the issue is influenced by different disciplines. You will consider at least two distinct ethical positions on the issue and defend your own position.
By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies:
As the producer and correspondent of a television or radio news magazine (like 60 Minutes, VICE News, or All Things Considered), you have been assigned to deliver an informative 12-minute segment on one of the contemporary issues you and your classmates have been discussing during the past three weeks. Corporate policy requires that you consider insights from two or more academic disciplines for example: nursing and social work, or philosophical ethics, psychology, and biology. (Note: These are only examples; you are free to choose your own disciplines!) It also requires that you interview credible representatives of at least two distinct positions on the issue. You need not remain neutral on the issue; in fact, you are expected to state and defend your own position with clear reasoning in your own words.
You will choose which of the complex social issues to present here. The intended audience for your segment is an intelligent but perhaps uninformed public, so this is your opportunity to engage them in an issue that matters to you.
This assignment is to write a transcript to later be used for another assignment, which will require you to either present this issue via a video or audio recording. The final written script for your production should, of course, include APA-style citations and references.
You will first need to submit the written transcript, which needs to allow for 12 minutes in length when you later record. Then you may submit the recording assessment itself in either of two formats:
