Ethical Toolkit

In the past two modules, you created a simple visual of your default mode of ethical reasoning and then began adding to it, in order to represent what it means to you to be an ethical professional using such concepts as relationship, well-being, and trust. In this activity, you will temporarily put that aside in order to visualize a workable method of ethical decision-making. (You’ll consolidate them later.) You’ll personalize the method outlined in Meyers Chapter 2, 2.6 and 2.7. When you are done, you will have the foundation of your personal ethical decision-making toolkit.Task:Design your SmartArt image based on what you learned this week. You explored how ethical decision-making can be understood as a process of reasoning and used it to test and understand the experience of a fictional character. Now, visualize your own process and highlight the tools that you believe will be the most useful to you. As you design your image, ask yourself, when the decision is difficult and you don’t know what to do, what steps do you want to take? What factors will you consider? How will you determine the extent to which relevant factors are involved? How will you incorporate, in advance, the outcomes of your decision? The visual map you create here should be the tool that you want to have on hand when you have to make the tough decisions.Use your essay to help you do this. How did your character come to their decision? Would you do it the same way? If so, create a visual model of that. Would you have made a different decision? If so, which factors, principles, and values would you use, and how would you justify your decision? Remember, this is not an exercise in emotion or belief. Those are not insignificant, and neither is conscience, but your faculty of reason must, in the end, be the arbiter of all of these inputs. Map your desired process in SmartArt (or a comparable tool), and as you create, think about your future self and your future clients. Prepare yourself for your calling with a process that is meaningful to you, that says something about you as an ethical person, and that is represented in a visual that will guide you when challenges arise.Once you are satisfied with your model, post it to the discussion for this activity, and comment briefly on the following questions:What did you learn about yourself in relationship to the ethical concepts that you tried to portray in your visual?Why did you use a certain template or include certain parts or concepts?
