In March 2017, Christoph Stückelberger, Professor of Ethics and President of Globethics.net, gave a two-week training on ‘Ethics of International Relations' and ‘Ethics of Political Behaviour' at Godfrey Okoye University, Unugu, Nigeria.
After the training, Christoph Stückelberger kindly shared his teaching experience:
"At Godfrey Okoye University in Enugu I was honoured to teach ‘Ethics of International Relations' and ‘Ethics of Political Behaviour' in a two-week block seminar. All my students in Nigeria, without exception, worked with their mobile phones to do research and communication."
More than 50 students carried out online research for some facts and figures. In doing so they registered on the Globethics.net website and downloaded articles from its online library, which is a basis also for the exam.
For each course we opened an online work group (restricted to the students of the respective class) where the students could access all course material and documents and communicate to the class. They could do all this with hand-held devises.
Despite the fact, that the Internet in Africa is weak and not stable, the access to higher education resources through our Library and Network is very important and a useful tool. We are providing a digital platform for teaching students locally and internationally, in combining online and offline facilities, with its huge online resource database. This shows Globethics.net's global impact and importance to all the students around the world.
Prof. Stueckelberger ended our exchange on his experience by " inviting all Globethics.net users—teachers, students, assistants and librarians—to use the manifold features of Globethics.net for the benefit of promoting values-driven teaching, learning and acting."
