Individual Freedom and Work Experience: A Seminar Prepared for Students Who Have Taken Introduction to Philosophy and Who Are Presently on Internships.
Rossman, Neil; Farrell, Catherine
Student and instructor course outlines are provided for a seminar designed to relate individual freedom to the work experiences of students presently on internships. First, the guide for the instructor identifies the seven sections of the course: "What Is Freedom?"; "Freedom and Your Internship"; "You and Your Co-Workers"; "How Much Freedom Do You Want?"; "Employer/Employee Rights and Responsibilities"; "Are Work and Freedom Compatible?" and the seminar evaluation. For each topical section, the outline details: (1) objectives, e.g., identification of the concept of freedom, the degree of freedom on the internship, how freedom relates to interactions with other workers, the importance of responsibility to the individual, and the qualities important to the person in his/her job; (2) discussion questions intended to make students examine their views on work and freedom, e.g., "How do you feel on the job?" and "Are you allowed to make mistakes?"; (3) field assignments, such as keeping a log on the internship and investigating certain aspects of the job situation; and (4) a list of readings. Additionally, objectives and procedures for evaluating the seminar are provided. The course outline for students presents overall course objectives and provides detailed instructions and questions for five field assignments. (HB)
