Assessing Ethics Instruction Offered by Various University Disciplines: A Case for Including Communication in the Mix.
Leipzig, John
A study examined whether the core objectives were being met in an ethics course called "Values and Choice" at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. A student survey was developed by faculty representatives from each of the disciplines offering a core course meeting the "Values and Choice" requirement. Subjects were 212 students who completed the 16-item survey. Results for all disciplines indicated that students perceived that Core objectives for the requirement were being met. Findings suggest that students rated the Communication offering (a course called "Communication Ethics") significantly higher than the other three course offerings in terms of its value to them. The "Communication Ethics" course was developed to actively engage students in examining the processes by which morality develops and ethics are shared between and within cultures.
