    Course Image Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development

    Learning Objectives

    This online course introduces the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development today, operationalizing the terms and ensuring a cohesive definition of CSR and its applications to corporate sustainability.

    The learning materials and tools made available through the courses allow participants to acquire the relevant introductory knowledge that will help them and their organizations to better address social responsibility concerns.

    The course aims to address the needs of professionals in private companies, NGOs, International Organisations and Governments who are currently involved in CSR and Sustainable Development, or would like to be involved in CSR, and wish to make the concept of CSR applicable in their institution.

    We also felt the need for this self-paced course because there are so many definitions of CSR buzzing around that we thought it would be useful to provide a guide to them and, also, to suggest a definition we think most appropriate.

The self-assessment grid under this link provides potential participants with an overview in case of unfamiliarity with this framework.

    Attendance Policy

    Academic success begins with attending classes to receive instruction and all relevant information for the learning experience. Therefore, it is imperative that participants demonstrate their responsibility by taking actively part in the class through the discussion forums and complete the coursework assignments within the timeframe allocated. Participants that are unable to attend the train-the-trainer course organised on site can use the first week of the online course to catch up with the pre-course material readings, and submit the survey as a pre-class assignment prior to the start of the course programme.

    Learning Resources

    The course programme is based upon and uses the Globethics.net collection on Ethics in Higher Education, with reference to ethics standards and tools, and with particular attention to building skills on how to design and implement a code of conduct relevant for teaching and research in ethics. A bibliographic reference list relevant for the course programme will be provided, and participants will be guided to make use of the references and other resources of the Globethics.net library for the purpose of their final written assignment.

    Learning Outcomes

    Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to

    1. demonstrate a practical, theoretical knowledge and understanding of the subject matter.

    2. review the concepts of applied ethics in higher education and how to apply them in real situations in class or outside the classroom.

    3. use appropriate cognitive and practical skills, methods and procedures to address problems that, while being well-defined, may be complex depending on the cultural context.

    4. define ethical criteria for behavioural change in the professional setting and they will be able to draft a code of conduct and best practice guidelines for research and publication.

    The indicators for learning outcomes in accordance with the proposed learning contents per unit, in view of the development of skills for employment, are described under the respective specific learning outcome indicators for each module (table 2 for module 1, table 3 for module 2, table 4 for module 3)

    Mode of Learning and Assessment

    Forum participation, coursework assignments and final writing assignment are graded according to the grading rubrics according to the grade distribution tables.

    During the discussions in the forum, students should demonstrate that they understand the theories presented by drawing basic examples from practical experience, and justify their opinion for or against the position presented in the case, or provide additional arguments to defend their positions based on their knowledge and understanding of the theories.

    As or the formative quizzes, they are mainly to make sure that students have read and understood the course material and the test results are made available as guidelines for self-learning. Feedback prior to the submission of final assignments is an important part of the accompaniment instructors offer participants in their learning progression. Points gained through this activity do not have a major impact on the summative assessment of the learning outcomes, however they are intended to support the learning progression of the participants in view of attaining the learning outcomes.

    Course organisation 

    The course programme is delivered both by onsite and online. 

    A training-of-trainers (TOT) session is organised on campus with a partner institution for the duration of two days. Participants are required to attend the full course programme and to participate to the survey on Ethics in Higher Education.

    Participants who have not attended the TOT session are required to go through the introductory first week and upload the pre-class survey before proceeding to the start of the course.

    After attending the 8 units (weeks 1-9), participants who opt for the “certification track” may, upon completion of the required assignments (including contributions to the forum discussions, weekly coursework assignments) proceed to submit the final writing assignment by week 10.

    Participants who sign up on the “basic track” are not required to submit the final writing assignment of week 10, but can change to opt for the “certification track” by week 5 of the course.

    Criteria for Evaluating Student Performance

    Forum participation, coursework assignments and final writing assignment are graded according to the grading rubrics.

    The criteria for evaluation student performance are built on the following distribution weight:

    • Forum discussion participation (20%)
