PRTO 3300 Senior Seminar in Business Ethics (Fall: 2 )


Course Description

The purpose of this course is to provide Portico Teaching Assistants a greater depth of understanding of the philosophical issues covered in Portico, and to offer an introduction to the core pedagogical techniques involved in teaching applied ethics. Participating TA’s will study the course material on a second-order level by considering the evolution of their understanding of the course material over their undergraduate career, and by exploring pedagogical best-practices to improve teaching outcomes. The structure of the course will thus run concurrently with that of Portico. While primarily directed towards enriching the experience of the TA’s, the course will simultaneously aim to facilitate the goals of Portico itself by providing TA’s with additional tools and resources for engaging with their students and creating a more cohesive and impactful classroom community.
