ETH 101: Ethics and Society

This is a suggested course syllabus for a 100-level introductory ethics course. I have focused primarily on primary source readings when possible, and using secondary or summary readings to supplement students' understanding of the primary sources. The only exception to this general rule, however, is the readings for Immanuel Kant, as his writings are far more dense and technical, and can be very difficult for the average undergraduate to parse through. For this reason I have included only secondary and summary readings for Kant's ethics. The suggested syllabus is formatted on the assumption that the readings are primarily a springboard for class discussion, and for each week's selections I have included suggested discussion starters which correlate to that week's readings. As I continue to build on and modify this resource I plan to attach some of my Google Slides for each section, as well as editable Mid Term and Final materials, so feel free to contact me about those or simply check back.

The open resources that I drew from each have additional selections which I chose not include but may be of interest to others, particularly "Introduction to Ethics" from Lumen Learning which contains various chapters exploring specific ethical dilemmas. So I encourage anyone who finds my course helpful to explore these other resources to see what else you may want to include for your students. Below are the various open sources I relied on to create this course.

Most of you come into this class asking yourself, “What is sociology?” Good question, I found myself asking that same question in high school during my first sociology class. In short, sociology is the study of society. I define sociology as seeing society from a view point other than your own. In a society where we stress individualism more and more every day, this becomes more difficult to understand or contemplate. Through this class, students will learn to see society through a set of different eyes. Students will see how social theory and research shape the decisions we make, the social change we desire, and the social constructs around us.

Sociology enables us to make observations and insights into the social world. Our aim in this course is to develop a sociological perspective by addressing a series of broad questions regarding the society we inhabit. We will work together throughout the semester to analyze and develop a deeper understanding of the social world through the lens of sociological inquiry. Along the way, you will become familiar with the substantive topics within the field of sociology. We will also begin to develop critical thinking skills with a focus of application to the real world and current events.

Pedagogy: This class is web-enhanced and therefore has substantial online content. To encourage participation and increase ease of access for the maximum number of students, participants can complete assignments online instead of physically attending class without any negative repercussions.

This is an introductory course in Microeconomics. This course aims to introduce students to the basic concepts of microeconomics such as scarcity and choice, and their influences in the decision-making process of individual consumers, firms, and governmental entities. Economics involves all types of decisions. This class will help you understand how different actors, business, households, non-profits and government institutions act. You will realize that this class helps you to put in economic terms the many daily decisions you make about how you allocate your resources. You choose daily what products to buy, businesses decide what products they produce and how many and what services they offer. This class will give you the structure you will need to make decisions more rationally, improving the way you utilize the limited resources that you have at hand.

As part of the Worcester State University OER initiative in Spring 2017, Dr. Elizabeth Osborne created and translated course materials for her SP 322, Advanced Spanish Composition II, course. Materials have been divided into peer review (revisión por pares) handouts, close reading activities (actividades de lectura detallada) and other miscellaneous materials. The materials included here are by no means exhaustive, but they serve as a starting point to making education affordable and to filling the gap in Spanish-language OER for upper division courses.
