012221 Philosophical and Ethical Practice in Education

6cp; 9 x 3hpw



The aim of this subject is to assist students to be ethical decision-makers and reflective educational practitioners, basing their actions on their own clearly considered philosophy of education as well as relevant and convincing arguments from research and policy. Such decision-making implies a reasoned and informed approach to teaching based upon an understanding and evaluation of relevant arguments, responsibilities and underlying principles. Students develop and clarify their own philosophy of education by examining various perspectives and the arguments and principles involved in current educational issues. In so doing, it is expected that students further develop critical-reflective skills needed for meaningful and successful educational practice.
