Learning Outcomes

My opinions on morality in the workplace

My opinions on morality in the workplace, corporate ethics, and customer service have all changed as a result of this course. I am aware of the significance of just compensation and discipline at work. The importance of issues like euthanasia, abortion, and death with respect has been exaggerated. I gained a better understanding of the moral and ethical dilemmas we face in dealing with people on a daily basis thanks to this training. I can now participate in discussions about the death with dignity legislation.

Journal of Vocational Behavior as a source for job references

Journal of Vocational Behavior would be my go-to source for job references in the future. The theoretical and empirical articles published in this magazine offer insight into various career options. The articles in this journal are important in career development and the work adjustment I need in my future practice (Pryor, 1982). I would also use materials from Journal of Business Ethics to have disciplinary and methodological knowledge on ethical issues.

Importance of scholarly journal articles

Scholarly journal articles have a high level of credibility and authority which makes their articles quality sources. I need them in my academic work and future knowledge in my disciplines. They also help in responding to ethical dilemmas that came before us. They are also unique since they require authors to verify their sources, ideas, facts, and methods. I need them to easily access the truth, as well as the weakness and strengths of the claims, made by other authors.

Changing view on mercy death killing

This course has changed my view on mercy death killing. I believe that a terminally ill patient has the right to death with dignity. However, I do not support euthanasia, where the doctor has autonomy in the process. A terminally ill patient should not be influenced by relatives of doctors to die with dignity. The choice remains with the patient. An article by Tolle and Teno (2017) is a study of the Oregon and how terminally ill patients respond to treatment. The statistics show that most terminally ill patients do not want to use the life support procedures. Local healthcare systems and state policies ensure moral standards are considered in end-of-life care.

Moral obligation in the war on terror

Concerning the war on terror, I believe American government has a moral obligation to protect its citizen. However, we cannot justify the killing of innocent women and children in Afghanistan, Somali and Iraq. Fitzpatrick (2003), states in one of the articles in the Journal of International Law that the homeland security is not genuine about the execution of war against terrorism.

Economic growth and climate change

Developed countries grow their economy to benefit the rest of the world, including developing nations. However, their benefit has not been significant enough to compensate for the warming climate. The future generation will pay for the carbon-fueled economy favoring the current generation (Steurer et al., 2005).

Relevance of course assignments

The course assignments were relevant in creating more insight on the subject matter of this course. I conducted additional research online after completing the assignment. I also inquired from other students on national debate issues such as mercy killing and environmental protection ethics. I now understand the principles involved in the voluntary self-administration of medication that takes away the life of a patient. I have learned the legal approach to these and other issues of environmental ethics.

Class participation and interaction

My class participation was excellent in this program. I answered questions and participated in class discussions during the course. The participation in class helped me pass the tests required by the lecturer. I was also attentive to details and learned more during the class lessons.

Benefits of peer learning style

Peer learning style allowed me to interact with fellow students and understand different aspects of the course. I got to know the ethical dilemmas and how different students would react to them. Peer learning helped me to have different points of views.

Commitment to assignments and inquiry

I had late assignments during the course. However, I submitted all my assignments after thorough research. My assignments reflected my best work. I was detailed in my assignments and made inquiries where necessary.

Appreciation for grading and teaching style

In general, I love the grading and teaching style of my professor during this course. The learning environment was favorable since each student could participate, regardless of their level of understanding of the subject. I interacted with the professor and asked questions that helped me learn more about ethics and values.
