I also rearranged the course from what had been offered, inserting a section on Confucian and Buddhist ethical theories.

Supervision:
I supervised two postgraduate students for part of the year on their 15000 word research Projects with Massey University:
Kate Tappenden: Xenotransplantation and Moral Status
Graham Cliff: Are Laws against Child Porn Permissible?

Study Guide: I also prepared a course on Business Ethics to be taught in the second semester, this involved choosing an appropriate text book, creating a book of readings and a substantial study guide (28000 words) to enable the extramural students to do the course.
