“Leading with Ethics in Achieving the SDGs” is an online course that will assist decision-makers in fostering the character traits and developing the durable skills necessary for SDG Leadership. Using state of the art online learning methodologies, instructors will explore techniques used by ethical leaders and seminal leadership scholars to prepare participants to handle various ethical issues and conflicts related to the achievement of the SDGs.

Participants will engage in oral and written presentations to strengthen self-leadership, ethical leadership, ethical conflict resolution in team leadership, transdisciplinary leadership as well as other forms of shared leadership in the 21st century. 

The certificate programme will be comprised of three units. We will deliver the units online in an interactive, blended learning experience that combines online digital media with traditional classroom methods. Participants will participate in the course via the Zoom online platform. The general structure of each unit will consist of three segments:


- Short videos/lectures by the instructor;
- Instructor-led exercises or case study reviews; and
- Team collaboration on Human-Centered Design projects.

 

Syllabus and the timeline will be provided.

  1. reflective awareness of fundamental value commitments
  2. integrity in exercising value commitments in a powerful and safe learning environment
  3. critical thinking in taking personal responsibility for purpose and direction
  • The development of personal frameworks for evaluating ethical issues and conflicts by exposing participants to the different approaches taken by various current leaders and espoused by seminal theorists/scholars in sustainable development.

 

Unit 2: Ethical Decision-making in Achieving the SDGs (Issue-centered Learning)

The learning objectives for this unit are as follows:

  • An appreciation for the relation of ethical leadership to ethical decision-making in team or shared leadership.
  • An enhanced understanding of the role of multiple individuals in loosely-structured teams, with particular emphasis on the relation of ethical leadership to:

Unit 3: How to be an Ethical Leader in the Global Ecosystem (Reflective Practice through Human-centered Design (HCD))

The learning objectives for this unit are as follows:

  • An understanding of the relation of organizational ethical leadership to ethical conflict resolution within a complex global ecosystem.
  • An enhanced appreciation of cross-functional and transdisciplinary forms of collaboration that span countries and cultures, with a particular emphasis on the relation of organizational ethical leadership to:
