Search the literature, web and any other sources to find out who is teaching and what is being taught in your area of interest. Are there are other centres with established ethics curricula? Are there web based learning tools? Published educational ethics literature focused on teaching (e.g. as opposed to research studies)? Report the results of this investigation as Section I of your curriculum.

Using this information, construct your ideal Ethics Curriculum in your area of interest. Outline/briefly describe 4-6 sessions (1-3 hrs each) listing for each session the following parts:
Topic
Objectives
Ethics message you wish to highlight
Teaching tools/modalities for the session
Brief Lesson Plan description/outline (focus on teaching plan rather than ethical analysis)
3-5 key references for syllabus
Come up with an Evaluation Plan (How will you evaluate your course/sessions?)
