Ethical, Legal, and Political Implications of Design

Christopher Christopher Hernandez earned this badge on Jul 28, 2019

Identify and respond to ethical, legal, and political implications of design in the workplace


  • Recognize, respect, and comply with organizational constraints

    Submit evidence of following a code of ethics including giving credit to others' ideas (such as proper use of citations) -or- demonstration of complying with constraints (budget issues, organizational rules or regulations, available technology, student demographics, etc.).

    • Examples: Proper use of citations in papers, discussion, publications; plagiarism certificate, the LDT honor code, other evidence (design, performance, workplace, educational, or other) demonstrating proper credit to other authors. 

    For the challenge "Recognize, respect, and comply with organizational constraints," I have chosen to submit my EDCI 531 final in order to provide evidence of using proper citation within papers.

    Publications and papers are the cornerstones of educational research and development. With that being said, there are often constraints in regard to how these publications can be written. Papers and publications must abide by proper citation and references. The provided evidence shows that I have abided by the constraints set forth by the APA writing style.

    I say this often; before this graduate program, I had no experience with the APA writing style. I am confident that, as time passes, I will grow as a writer who can easily comply with the rules that are established in APA writing. Establishing this skill will help me if I ever decide to try and write a professional article for publication.

  • Comply with organizational and professional codes of ethics

    Submit evidence of following a professional code of ethics.

    • Examples: Completed plagiarism certificate, signed LDT honor code, signed workplace code of ethics, other (design, performance, workplace, or educational) code of ethics. 

    For the challenge "Comply with organizational and professional codes of ethics," I am submitting my completed plagiarism certificate from EDCI 590.

    No matter the organization, school or business, there will always be a code of ethics which individuals must abide by. These codes dictate the very fabric of our daily lives. The plagiarism quiz tests students on their ability to recognize what is and can be considered plagiarism within the academic world. Before taking the quiz students normally read up on provided materials that can help them learn how to reference and give credits to authors properly.

    The plagiarism quiz was an eye-opener for me. During my undergraduate years, APA and proper citation wasn't a critical part of the curriculum. The plagiarism quiz caused me to reflect on previous papers where I did not properly give credit to an author and their work. Of course, this is not something I would do on purpose as I know it is important to give and receive the proper accreditation.

    After reflecting on this certificate, this quiz was a good intro into my coursework. After taking it I have been more aware of how I cite sources within papers.
