Catalog Course Description This course is designed to develop skills needed for analyzing a problem or situation to arrive at a hypothesis or conclusion about it after synthesizing or integrating all available information. In critical thinking, all assumptions are open to question, divergent views are sought, and the investigation is not biased in favor of a particular solution. Summer 2016 COURSE DESCRIPTION As a short, intense exploration of Ethics and Critical Thinking I expect you to find most of the responsibility on learning will fall on you. I will set up the assignments in a way to guide you through the material. This guidance will lead you to reading and reflection….not lectures and powerpoints. IF you are NOT a self-directed learner then you should consider the face to face class! Prerequisites : Junior Standing, MGT 200, or other introductory legal class Instruction Materials: 1. Everyday Ethics: Making Wise Choices In A Complex World , Baird Copyright 11Edition 2 ISBN 0-9831106-0-3 (approx $35 from the bookstore, or you can purchase here It is very hard to find this book used) 2. Assigned class readings posted on blackboard 3. Current newspapers or online sources for current events. 4. Ethicsgame website access for this course, see instructions on blackboard Students are expected to be familiar with Western Kentucky policy on Academic Honesty. In this class academic dishonesty on an exam or a paper will result in an “F” for the course, and will be reported to the proper officials. You are expected to do your own work – there are ample opportunities to cheat in an online class, don’t make the mistake of thinking that I am not looking carefully at your work. WKU's Plagiarism Definition: "To represent written work taken from another source as one's own is plagiarism. Plagiarism is a serious offense. The academic work of a student must be his/her own. Once must give any author credit for source material borrowed from him/her. To lift content directly from a source without giving credit is a flagrant act. To present a borrowed passage without reference to the source after having changed a few words is also plagiarism." Borrowed from IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS about how to stay on the “right” side of the policy please contact me.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
