6. Advocate ethical, environmentally, socially and culturally responsible solutions by communicating effectively both orally and in writing to contemporary 21st century problems. Learning and teaching strategies Enquiry Based Learning (EBL) principles have been adopted to deliver Business Ethics. EBL is learning that is driven through a process of enquiry owned by the student. This unit offers an innovative and challenging learning context for students to apply existing knowledge about ethics and corporations, and develop a greater theoretical and practical understanding. Students will work individually and collaboratively to explore ethical literature and materials relevant to the topic. The outcomes of students’ collaborate group work will be presented to industry experts in public panel discussions on ethics, water and human rights, and business and human rights in the garment industry. Graduate capabilities Victoria University’s Graduate Capabilities are generic skills that all students should possess at graduation. These skills are in addition to the specific knowledge and skills associated with the discipline area of students’ degrees. Graduate Capabilities are divided into five levels (for undergraduates) and will be achieved progressively with increasing levels of sophistication. A full description of the Graduate Capabilities can be found in the VU Graduate Capabilities policy. This unit focuses on ethical issues associated with contemporary business practice. Theoretical information will be applied (GC1b) when proposing resolutions to contemporary problems (GC1a). Students will collaborate when engage in this activity (GC1d). Solutions will consider balancing of individual and public good (GC3d) and an environmentally sustainable world (GC3b) as well as social and cultural responsibility. Students will receive structured feedback on their experience of the above VU Graduate Capabilities through feedback on performance in assignments. This unit of study contributes to development of these Graduate Capabilities in a number of ways. In addition to discipline knowledge, skills and their application, the study of this unit is intended to contribute to students developing the graduate capabilities in table 1 below. Table 1 offers examples of how the teaching and learning activities in this unit and the assessment tasks correspond to each Graduate Capability. Business Ethics unit study guide Page | 5

    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.
