The purpose of this text is quite simple. It fits my teaching needs and in doing so, I assert that it too may fit your needs. I offer this script in whole or part for your use and would encourage peer feedback. I have written this from the lens of a Criminal Justice practitioner for nearly forty years. My career began in the early 1970s until 2010. As one can imagine, the ethical significance of each member of a Criminal Justice system is critical. I further assert that albeit this was written for self-serving interests to teach in the Criminal Justice discipline, I strongly believe that it remains sufficiently generic that it can fit in many other disciplines that accompanies professor imagination splicing your inventive juices.
Often professors, teachers, coaches, or trainers are provided a range of written materials (generally textbooks) that may fit a module or two of the desired material by the instructor. We often find ourselves researching many articles to supplant the selected text rather than to supplement. A major benefit of writing OER material is that it provides a starting point and peers may add to the submitted material. Herein lies one of my personal interest, I would encourage my peers to provide a counterpoint section for each chapter provided within this material. Thus, we may collectively add to the critical thinking cycle of our future practitioners.
