Part 1: Complete ‘EthicsGame’ Ethical Lens Inventory (ELI) simulation and submit the report; (Refer to Cloudsite for resources and instructions on ELI).

ELI is a typology to help you understand what core values influence the choices you make when no rules tell you what to do. The ELI provides an awareness about your specific ethical priorities, strengths and blind spots.

Part 2: Provide a *reflection piece drawing on your personal ethics lens (part 1) and a choice of any 2 specific topics from the unit to address the following:

Given your personal ethics lens, how do you perceive that these topics will assist you, a Global Citizen in your future role as a professional accountant or leader in business?

*Note: Refer to Cloudsite for resource and guidance on how to write a reflection.

Personal opinion is required in a reflective piece. Students are to analyse and provide an individual written reflective piece by drawing from your selected topics. For example, you may include in your analysis a reflection on moral sensitivity, awareness, cultural values or intercultural issues, judgement, decision making, implications of actions on stakeholders etc. or any area from the unit which you consider relevant in your personal

ethical journey to date. In your reflection, your focus should be on the development of your awareness of the Global Citizenship concepts.

Deakin defines GLO 8 - Global Citizenship as engaging ethically and productively in the professional context and with diverse communities and cultures in a global context. Here is a list of questions that you can use to help you reflect about Global Citizenship:

• What do I currently do that shows I am a Global Citizen?

• What do I need to consider when making a decision, in regard to Global Citizenship?

• What have I learnt about a culture other than my own?

• How would I make a decision about something if I lived in another country?

• What would be the decision if I lived in another country, and why would it be different to the decision I make if I were in Australia?

Suggestion: Create a journal for your selected topics. You should include entries in your journal on a regular basis throughout the trimester to help you develop your understanding of GLO 8 – Global Citizenship. Given your personal ethics lens conducted via EthicsGame simulation, document how your knowledge and skills progressed in this area during the trimester. When making entries in your journal, include ways in which you can prove that you are more aware of Global Citizenship and the impact that it has on your daily behaviour and thoughts. You could also start developing a table where you document different cultures and their values.
