Guidelines for Case Analysis and Presentation


There are a variety of ways that your team can present your case analysis. You may use a PowerPoint presentation. You may stage a debate. You may create and present a website on the case for the class. You may write out a formal analysis and pass it out to your classmates. You may create a dramatization representing the case and examine it with the class. Feel free to be creative. Whatever approach you take to the case, you need to address the following points:

bulletWhat are the Facts?
bulletWhat are the Ethical Issues?
bulletWho are the Stakeholders?
bulletWhat are the Alternatives?
bulletWhat are the Ethical Arguments for the Alternatives?
bullet     Here you want to bring in Utilitarian, Rights, Justice, Care, and if applicable, Natural Law, arguments for and against.
bulletWhat are the Practical Constraints?
bulletWhat Actions Ought to be Taken?

Be sure to provide handouts for the members of the class that will help them remember your main points.

Presentation/Analysis will be graded on the basis of completeness, clarity, creativity, and the ability to respond to questions and comments from class members.
