Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Students will explore personal and professional aspects of ethical leadership perspectives. They can look at ethical perspectives from a general overview, or they can choose to focus on ethical perspectives within their specific field, such as: business, entrepreneurship, engineering, or athletics. Students will use a variety of ethical frameworks to analyze ethical situations and how values held by leaders and organizations result in ethical impacts and outcomes. The course will address philosophical origins of ethical frameworks and how they relate to the current business and societal environment. Primary focus will be on supporting students in identifying their personal values and developing a values-based plan for their individual leadership style to help them succeed as a values-based leader in their fields.

At this time, the Shelton Center's Board of Advisors has stressed the importance of principle-based leadership. We have not identified any online courses that focus on supporting students in identifying their personal values and developing a values-based plan for their individual leadership style to help them succeed as a values-based leader in their field. Therefore, we believe this proposed course would be of value to NC State students in a variety of disciplines.

Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Forum_post30 pointsSeveral times throughout the semester you will be expected to post in discussion forums and reply to at least 2 of your classmates’ postings in that forum. There will be approximately 10 topics required for this Discussion Forums grade. Each required forum will be identified. (Based on the ongoing interactions of the class, there may as many as 12-15 required topics.) You should post thoughtful, well-written initial comments and responses. The forums will relate to the module topics. Some discussion forums will be a group forum and will require you to work with your classmates. These are part of the group simulations.
Other40 pointsGroup Simulations - There will be 3 experiential learning activities that you will complete as a group. These will not be projects, but more of a short simulation activity where you will work with some of your classmates and then reflect on the activity. This will usually be accomplished through group forums, but there may be some instances where you will need to communicate with your classmates via email, Skype, etc.
Project50 pointsGroup Project - You will work with your group to create a theory/framework that addresses the topic: “How to be an ethical leader in today’s world.” After you create it, you will explain and demonstrate it as an action plan in an online presentation. Based on feedback from “external experts” who view your presentation, your group will revise your theory.
Written Assignment80 pointsMini-Analyses – You will write 4 brief analyses throughout the semester.

Team Case Study Analysis – You will analyze a team’s development using the Tuckman model of team development and ethical values. Using the course materials and conversations in discussion forums, you will write a 1-2 page analysis evaluating a team development situation.

Business Blog Analysis – You will analyze business blogs dealing with ethics. Using the course material relating to ethical frameworks and ethical decision-making, you will write a 1-2 page analysis evaluating the blogs.

Leaders Analysis – You will analyze several current leaders in your field based on case studies or news reports. Using the course material relating to ethical frameworks and ethical decision-making, you will write a 1-2 page analysis examining the actions of the corporate leaders.

Project50 pointsPersonal Values Project – This will be the culminating assignment for the semester. The project will include: your personal mission statement, a video statement of your personal leadership ethics; a Reflection Blog about lessons learned from this course; and a personal values plan.
Participation20 pointsWithout personal contact in class, we must rely on discussion forums to establish a presence in the class and discuss ideas. I expect you to actively participate in the course and demonstrate professionalism in all course communication, including group activities and discussions. For the group participation grade, you will evaluate yourself and be evaluated by your group members based on your participation and contribution to your group’s project.
