EDCS 7020 - The Moral and Ethical Dimensions of Leadership

Provides opportunity to engage in a broad exploration of the moral and ethical dimensions of leadership as it applies to various educational and community settings. Assumes that leadership extends beyond traditional roles and models of leadership. Examines how people who consider themselves leaders and or change/agents recognize and make moral and ethical decisions in their practice. The discipline of Western philosophy has developed multiple moral frameworks in an effort to explain how and why we make moral and ethical decisions and/or what guidelines we might rely upon in doing so. In addition, developmental psychology has also paid attention to the stages of moral development and reasoning for the same purpose. It is worthwhile to be familiar with these philosophical models, and at the same time be aware that most people make moral and ethical decisions drawing upon multiple rationales, cultural value sets, and contexts. Examines the serious import of understanding oneself and one’s moral and ethical living and decision-making, given the depth of impact of moral and ethical decisions in people’s lives.
