null New Globethics Library Collection on Ethics in Higher Education

Launched for the Globethics Consortium on Ethics in Higher Education. With more than 79'000 items the Ethics in Higher Education Collection aims to help students, teachers and higher education administrators to stay well informed on ethical issues affecting university life, and to understand how to advocate for the respective interests of all parties, at the institutional, state, regional and international levels.

Newest forms of innovative education are presented in an ambitious collection on ethics in higher education, addressing key issues such as:

  • Why didactic method is as important as the delivery of a good curriculum?
  • How to support by means of institutional efforts students to aspire to and plan for education?

The main aim of the collection is to transcend the empirical layer of education in order to provide a careful normative description and ethical incentives for good education. But what does good education mean?

  • Is an educated student a person who is mastering technology?
  • Is a competent researcher a person who is able of developing disinterested knowledge?

Applying practical knowledge in context is certainly as important as refocusing our self-understanding on virtue based values.

Inspired by the wisdom collected since early Antiquity to the current contexts, Library helps to manifest the highest level of academic integrity and reminds us that simply dealing with others honestly and fairly are universal values.
