This course is structured around the freely avaliable online textbook "Ethics, Aging, and Society: The Critical Turn." The textbook presumes some knowledge of ethics and moral theory, so the first module of the course will aim to educate students about 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. Retakes are available for all assigned quizzes, and students have a choice to participate in various discussions of their liking. 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.
