Learning Module

The TTU Ethics Center has collaborated with faculty, staff, and scholars from the Texas Tech community to develop a learning module for each of the eight values in the Statement of Ethical Principles. Each module includes the statement of the featured principle, pre-learning questions, a presentation, video learning, references, an illustration (or illustrations) of the principle in practice, and a post-learning assessment.

Each module takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. These modules serve as introductory tools for students and other members of the campus community to further Texas Tech University's 'Campus Conversation on Ethics."
