Learning Theory for Leaders

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

I have been given the task of creating a learning solution that I am in serious need of assistance and guidance on completing: (I have attached the design template for this assignment)
Your challenge for this course is to design a case-based learning solution for non-learning leaders wanting to understand learning theory.
• Intended Audience: any leader who wants to understand the role of learning in their organization and who does not have a background in learning theory or instructional design
• Technology Level: the solution needs to have simple low-tech elements to it such that a leader without a computer could complete the course as easily as one with a computer.
• Demonstrates design theory and practice: the solution must not only cover content about learning theory and design but must demonstrate effective application of learning theory and practice.
• Tools: MS Word and PowerPoint will be sufficient for most designs and deliverables but should not be considered to be the only tools that may be used.
• Outcomes: the desired level of competency for your audience is that they "can justify learning solutions for development of their people and their business." You will need to break this down into more precise sub-components. Differences between how each person in class breaks down the outcomes will be part of what gives each person's solution uniqueness.
• Length: the solution's length is not defined for you other than to say that, for leaders, the more concise a learning solution is, the more likely they are to attend and participate long enough to actually learn something.
• Deliverables: the required deliverables will be a design document (example design template is provided in Module 1, but is not required) and examples of materials proposed in the design. You do not need to have the materials developed out to a final version. However, you need a sampling that gives a clear picture of how you would deploy this class. If your design includes a participant manual and an instructor manual, then you need a chapter of each. If your design includes slides for an instructor to use in delivering lesson content, then you need enough examples of those slides to be able to "see" and "experience" the learning. If you expect to provide a handout or job aid, then mock one up for submission.

Kantianism & Egoism: Applied Ethics in the Workplace

Workplace Ethics:

Kant said that the whole of ethics is contained in the simple obligation to treat all persons as inherently valuable in themselves (not merely for what we can get from them)--in other words, with respect for them as equal to ourselves in value, and more valuable than any objects such as money or power. Ethics is in this sense respect for persons as the only absolute value in the things of this world.

Using this principal as a working definition of morality, how far should management go in a company, which directs action, to teach or demand morality from employees? And should employees also demand morality from management?

Is morality (thus defined) in total contradiction to the popular Egoism of today's business environment--which says that everyone should seek only his or her own advantage, regardless of the concerns of others? How could these opposite principles be reconciled?
