Series: Education for Justice (E4J) University Module Series: Integrity & Ethics

This Teaching Guide accompanies the series of 14 University Modules on Integrity and Ethics, which were developed by UNODC under its E4J (Education for Justice) initiative, and provides relevant background information and pedagogical guidance for lecturers who are using or interested in using the Modules in the classroom. Following a brief introduction to the E4J initiative and the Modules, the Teaching Guide includes four substantive sections. The first section offers pedagogical advice on relevant teaching methods that could be employed when delivering classes based on the Modules and explores some of the educational theories that underpin these methods. The second section of the Teaching Guide discusses the importance of an ethical learning environment for effective ethics education. The section offers practical suggestions on how lecturers can foster such an environment, with a particular focus on what they can do within the context of the classroom. In its third section, the Teaching Guide provides summaries of each of the 14 Modules and their learning outcomes. These summaries offer a first glimpse into the content and approaches of the individual Modules as well as an overview of the entire module series. Finally, the fourth section provides guidelines for integrating the Modules into the curricula. In particular, it offers advice on how to adapt the Modules to local and cultural contexts, incorporate them within existing courses, change their suggested timeframes, develop stand-alone courses from one or several Modules, and use the Modules in larger class settings. The Teaching Guide furthermore includes an appendix with brief descriptions of all 71 exercises that are included in the Modules.
