Collection Description

Ethics in Higher Education

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 interested parties, at the institutional, state, regional and international levels.
From the empirical point of view the collection on ethics in education includes documents that explain what the newest forms of innovative education are, why didactic method is as important as the delivery of a good curriculum, and this collection could even give concrete insights on 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 it mastering of technology, developing disinterested knowledge, apply practical knowledge in context, or self-understanding and virtue? Inspired by the wisdom collected since early Antiquity to the current contexts, Library should help to manifest the highest level of academic integrity and reminds us that simply dealing with others honestly and fairly are universal values.
