Subject outline

This subject engages students in an innovative and challenging learning experience as it introduces moral frames to help analyse issues and challenges in the controversial management and supply of water in global contexts. Students will adopt relevant roles to participate in a high-level, ethics and rights discussion and debate where they will consider issues relating to organisations, the environment, politics, corruption and governance. Working individually and in teams, within a collaborative, enquiry-based learning (EBL) framework, students will explore and analyse relevant literature to develop their roles and moral reasoning and present their case to a genuine expert panel.
