The Center for Character and Social Responsibility (CCSR) and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Initiative for the Development of Ethical Leadership (MLK-IDEAL) are proud to announce the BUx Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) entitled Ethical Leadership: Character, Civility and Community taught by Professor Walter Earl Fluker, Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of Ethical Leadership, School of Theology & the Graduate Division of Religious Studies, CAS. Fluker is also the editor of the Howard Thurman Papers Project and Director of the MLK-IDEAL at the BU School of Theology http://www.bu.edu/sth/.As part of Professor Fluker’s work with MLK-IDEAL, this course will provide theoretical and practical approaches to the development of character, civility and community for leaders and emerging leaders in education, business, nonprofit, academic, religious, and other professions. The course examines the personal, public and spiritual dimensions of leadership within the context that Fluker calls “the intersection of lifeworlds and systems”; and outlines principles and practices of ethical leadership from a diverse field of leadership theories. Fluker’s work grounds leadership in story, the appropriation of one’s personal narrative within social and historical contexts, as a basis for personal and social transformation. A major outcome of the course is an Ethical Leadership Toolkit which include: the Ethical Leadership Model™, the Model for Ethical Decision-Making, practical exercises that are part of life-long leadership development (Remembering, Retelling and Reliving Our Stories and Looking, Listening and Learning); and a variety of aesthetic and literary sources, case studies, journaling and meditative practices.The MOOC will also present video interviews from leadership theorists as well as prominent leaders in the areas of education, business, government and global citizenship such as: Professor David Gergen, Congressman John Lewis, Professor Howard Gardner, Professor Ronald Heifitz, Ambassador Andrew Young, Professor Max Bazerman, and Professor Barbara Kellerman, Dr. Jochen Fried (Salzburg Global Seminar) and many more!For further information please contact Jonathan Salazar, Marketing Director, BU SED at firstname.lastname@example.org or Robin Masi, Ethical Leadership Course Coordinator and Teaching Faculty, at email@example.com.
