Now that we have learned about the three main branches of ethical theory (consequentialism, non-consequentialism, and virtue ethics), which approach would you want a President of the United States to excel at in his or her own life and work? Why do you think it is more important for a President to live in accordance with this approach to ethics as opposed to the other two?
Discussions are a very important part of online learning. Consider this your “in class time” where you can interact with your classmates and instructors to discuss what you have learned from the course materials and how it relates specifically to you.
Each unit Discussion Forum will be worth 25 points and will be graded on the following criteria:
Active/Timely Participation: Initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. EST of each unit, with at least two more participation/reply posts to classmates submitted no later than Sunday 11:59 p.m. EST of that unit, unless otherwise noted.
Professional Communication: Posts are written in proper English, and are grammatically correct with no spelling, capitalization, or punctuation errors. Correct APA in-text citations and references are used.
Response to Questions: All questions are answered in complete detail in the initial post.
Evidence of Critical Thinking: Posts are written using personal experiences and research so that classmates are motivated to continue the conversation and enhance and explore the topics being addressed.
Course Connections: Posts contain clear connections to the readings and activities of the unit and show clear evidence that the course materials were reviewed and understood.
