This learning module is designed to be presented in four class sessions of approximately 50-90 minutes each. The material is appropriate for undergraduate or graduate students studying human resource or business management. Five integrated cases allow students to practice resolving HR problems using the ethical principles introduced in the module. The first two sessions provide instructional material on ethical theories and moral development. Session 3 is for presentation and discussion of the cases, and the last class session addresses the HR professional’s responsibility for the organization’s culture of ethics. The module includes an instructor’s manual with cases and teaching notes and a PowerPoint presentation for classroom use.
