Abstract

A whole of curriculum approach using as a design framework, cognitive apprenticeship, is advocated for the inclusion of ethics within undergraduate business degrees. The cognitive apprenticeship framework was used to examine the inclusion of ethics within undergraduate business degrees at a regional Australian university. Interviews with lecturing staff were used to document the understanding of how ethics was included within the degrees. Many lecturers were found to be applying the framework for including ethics within their subjects and degrees often without formal knowledge of the process. A more rigorous approach to cognitive apprenticeship curriculum design within a more collaborative system was identified as a way of improving the degrees.
