- From the Instructor:
- This course is structured after the assigned textbook 'Ethics, Aging, and Society: The Critical Turn.' The textbook presumes some knowledge of ethics and moral theory, so the first few weeks of the course will aim to help students understand the view of ethics to which the textbook is reacting. After this, the course will follow closely the themes of the textbook and students will be responsible for debating and discussing the content of the textbook. The course will end with student presentations in which students will suggest a possible solution to a particular ethical concern or issue in the lives of aging or elderly individuals. Student presentations can take various forms such as a poster, a power point slide deck, or a short essay paper.
