About this course

As professionals, we are asked to solve problems and make decisions daily. From our instincts as humans to situational context, there are many factors at play as we consider problems and make decisions. Sometimes, the ethical dimensions of a problem are not immediately obvious when matters are brought to our attention. The use of a decision-making framework can help ensure we consider the various aspects of a problem or challenge, including its ethical dimensions.

Topics include:
• Ethical theory, including ethical dimensions of decision-making
• Considerations such as human nature, situational context and cognitive framing
• Decision-making frameworks

What you will learn?
Understand some of the challenges of human decision- making
Consider ethical dilemmas from the perspective of different ethical theories
