Paideia 450: Ethical Choices Study-Away Course Proposal Form

Paideia 450: Ethical Choices is a team-taught, junior-senior course devoted to interdisciplinary study of an ethical issue that confronts us in our lives as learners and citizens. Paideia 450 courses must pay special attention to the nature of moral decision making and to the continued development of students' writing skills.  

To simplify the process you do not have to complete the Off-Campus Course Proposal Form for the Center for Global Learning. This form serves both purposes.  Deadline for submission is October 25th.

The Paideia Director welcomes discussion about off-campus course proposals.

Briefly explain how the course will meet the following goals of Paideia 450 courses:
INTENTIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARITY: Paideia 450 is an interdisciplinary course taught by two or more instructors from different divisions or departments. How will the course incorporate varied disciplinary perspectives and approaches to study?*
ETHICAL REFLECTION AND MORAL DECISION MAKING: In what ways is the course a study of ethical choices that face individuals and society? How will the course be designed to engage students in ethical challenges and help them learn to make educated choices?*
INTENSIVE WRITING: Generally, Paideia 450s require writing assignments totaling no less than 15 typed pages or the hand-written equivalent. Typically, this includes 3 to 4 response papers (3-5 pages each) and 1 or 2 longer argumentative papers (5-7 pages each). Some 450s satisfy the response papers with extended journal or blog entries. Students are given feedback about both their ideas and how to improve writing quality in subsequent papers.*
INTEGRATED ITINERARY/SYLLABUS: For each date briefly explain how the locations, sites, or experiences are related to your syllabus and course goals. In general, off-campus courses are approximately 21-24 days in length. [Please Note: For January 2021, the CGL will be coordinating airport transportation from Luther to the Chicago airport on January 4 or 5 and the return from Chicago to Luther on January 26 or 27. All programs will depart from either Minneapolis or Chicago, depending on cost. If your program requires a departure/return date other than those listed above, the program will generally use the Minneapolis airport.*
