ETH 101: Final Project
Final Project Creativity Statement
In preparation for your final project each potential Master Trainer must create a Creativity Statement outlining the manner in which they will demonstrate the syntheses of knowledge and teaching skills. This can be done, creatively, in a manner that outlines your desired goals and objectives. To formulate your goals and objectives determine:
- Gaps in your knowledge and understanding of ethics and integrity and their application in the community policing environment;
- Any ethical attitudes you desire to develop or modify; and,
- How you anticipate utilizing knowledge and skills you attain in preparation for teaching ethics and integrity in the classroom environment.
Behaviorists advocate the creation of learning objectives that are stated in two ways:
- Measurable describing the intended learning, or
- Describing the totality of the material experienced through the demonstration of the acquired knowledge, skills and abilities.
Utilize the on-line resources provided to you in each course module; this does not preclude the use of materials other than those provided. While the course is on-line and self-paced, it is recommended you develop and attend to a study schedule so as not to lose continuity of thinking about newly acquired material and to better facilitate the building of new material onto existing knowledge and practical application strategies. Be realistic about the hours you can dedicate to the course at any given time.
To evaluate the attainment of your desired level of proficiency, always remain cognizant of your goals and objectives. Your final project can be demonstrated creatively through the creation of an oral presentation of a case study, the development of a guidebook, toolkit or other publication for use by yourself or others, an audio/visual presentation or a thesis reflecting your thoughts and synthesis of ethical material. Be creative in the determination and development of your final project. If you have a unique idea for your final project you may contact the Project Coordinator to discuss your idea for demonstrating the syntheses of knowledge and teaching skills.
Peers as well as subject matter experts will have the opportunity to provide constructive feedback and comments to you concerning their interpretation of the material included in your final project.
