Explore Student Disclosure of Personal Information
Assume that a major component of an undergraduate course in child growth and development you are teaching involves the Signature Assignment. This assignment requires you to relate the Eriksonian stages to autobiographical data and biographical information of family members. One of your students refuses to disclose anything personal and claims you are in violation of ethics Standard 7.04. Since you are unwilling to change the requirement, the student files a complaint with the department chair.
Create a transcript of the dialogue between you and the department chair, Dr. Kweigg, who supports the student. Examine the possible conflicts between your assignment criteria and Standard 7.04, providing specific examples to support your reasoning for not changing the assignment. Explain how you will resolve the situation, given the department chair agrees with the student who filed the complaint.
In your argument, you must demonstrate that the autobiographical component is necessary to achieve the stated course outcomes. You also need to explain how this requirement was clearly identified in the course description. You are expected to provide the opposing argument from Dr. Kweigg.
