For this week’s assignment, you will create an audio or a video presentation that examines from various points of view the complex ethical issue you selected last week as your focus for discussion.
As the producer and correspondent of a television or radio news magazine (like 60 Minutes, VICE News, or All Things Considered), you have been assigned to deliver an informative, 12-minute segment on the contemporary issue that was the focus of your discussions last week and this week. Corporate policy requires that you consider insights from two or more academic disciplines or professions, for example Nursing and Social Work, or Philosophical Ethics, Psychology, and Biology. (Note: These are only examples; you are free to choose your own disciplines.) It also requires that you interview credible representatives of at least two distinct positions on the issue. You do not need to remain neutral on the issue; in fact, you are expected to state and defend your own position with clear reasoning in your own words.
The intended audience for your segment is an intelligent but perhaps uninformed public, so this is your opportunity to engage them in an issue that matters to you.
