In this project, students will familiarize themselves with frameworks discussed in moral psychology (i.e., what is moral/immoral) and apply them to better understand the dynamics of interpersonal relations in the workplace. In particular, by reading and analyzing real-life incidents which describe trust violating events at the workplace, the students will learn how trust relations are established and threatened in the workplace. In addition, they will compare trust incidents narrated by subordinates, coworkers versus supervisors to explore whether positional power has influence on trust formation and violation. As a result of this project, students are expected to develop an awareness of fundamental frameworks in moral psychology, organizational trust as well as learn about content analyzing critical incident data and running basic descriptive statistics using open source statistical programs like JASP or JAMOVI.
