Ethics Higher Education Training Workshop in Nigeria
Last workshop at University of South Africa
As part of the Ethics for Institutions and Ethics for Teachers Programme, Globethics.net will conduct a 3-day training workshop followed by a one day Training-of-Trainers in Enugu, Nigeria. Godfrey Okoye University will be hosting the event but there will be also other universities involved such as the Enugu State University of Science and Technology and Peaceland College of Education.
The workshop due to take place from 23–26 October 2018 is aimed at addressing the role of ethics in Higher Education Institutions and the importance of reaffirming institutional values and responsible leadership. The workshop includes, among others, how to deal with ethical issues in the day-to-day work of the university and how to communicate to the entire staff and secure their commitment to more ethical behaviours. At the institutional level, the workshop provides guidance on management tools and mechanisms to be adopted so as to embed values more firmly in institutional processes and procedures including teaching courses and research work.
The desire to further develop capacities in the area of ethics in higher education comes from the critical role of higher education institutions in fostering students to not only be well educated but also to be values-driven, as citizens and as leaders.
As of 2018, Globethics.net offers four programmes to systematically integrate ethics into higher education. The Training of Trainers (TOTs—product No. 22) product offers on-campus training followed with online learning materials.
