    Stückelberger, Christoph, 1951- (2019)
    Higher education globally and also in Africa faces manifold challenges in governance, funding, students' and staff recruitment, exam monitoring, plagiarism, bullying, cybercrime etc. But many opportunities arise for universities which position themselves as values-driven educational institutions. Ethics increase credibility, credibility builds trust, trust brings reputation, reputation increases number of students, improves teachers’ teaching and brings more funding. Education in Higher education means forming future leaders. Ethics in Higher education therefore is leadership ethics. The contribution shows the crisis of trust, reasons for the ethical challenges in higher education, which values and virtues need to be benchmarks and which concrete steps lead to solutions on personal, institutional, political, economic and spiritual level.
  • Higher education in crisis : sustaining quality assurance and innovation in research through applied ethics

    Ani, Ikechukwu J.; Ike, Obiora F., 1956- (Globethics.net, 2019)
    Education in Ethics, if acquired, increases the value chain of any nation because Education founded on values brings values-driven-principles into the heart of humans. We are, however, aware of the gap in values transmission from one generation to the next. This book is a response to that gap. It contains reflections by professionals, teachers, research students and educationists, including policy makers and ethicists, whose thought provoking ideas help the discourse of pushing the agenda that Ethics Matters.

  • Inclusive Education and Epistemic Value in the Praxis of Ethical Change

    Haaz, Ignace (Globethics.net, 2019-07)
    IIn many universities and related knowledge transmission organisations, professional focus on empirical data shows as in vocational education that preparation for real life technical work is important, as one would expect from “career education”. University is as the name shows on the contrary focusing on the universality of some sort of education, which is neither a technical one, nor much concerned by preparing oneself for a career. The scope of this chapter is to propose an analysis of inclusion as the very essence of an ethics of reformation of education, which in our opinion cannot come from the institution of education as much as from a common basis between everyday learning capacities and curriculum based learning methods. Inclusive vision and values should be theoretically explained by philosophers in order to be refined and adapted into our current experience of values, pointing out issues about method and knowledge parameters. In particular a focus on epistemic values should bring good indications on how to empower others, and leave a more inclusive life, assuming the somehow paradoxical and surprising idea that knowledge is as important in real life outside the university as it is in the classroom, being the real universal value and currency across disciplines, times and contexts. University learns from being inclusive, i. e. by bringing not only a higher point of view on technical education but also a wider view on the human being.

  • Ethics in Higher Education

    Ike, Obiora; Onyia, Chidiebere (Globethics.net, 2018)
    The international conference of the University of Nigeria, held in 2016, made it clear that education must assist and lead students to learn to be free, responsible, innovative and creative. The teacher has the duty to guide students to know how to acquire knowledge that is not mere information but knowledge that is reflected, offering essential insights needed for effective living—such knowledge bears the ingredients of ethics. This first of two book volumes serves as a guide providing insights gained through experience from 29 authors, including teachers, administrators and policy makers and researchers, all brought together to focus on how Ethics in Higher Education can be integrated into concrete contexts.
  • Ethics in Higher Education : Values-driven Leaders for the Future

    Stückelberger, Christoph, 1951-; Singh, Divya (Globethics.net, 2017)
    The values and virtues practised in universities heavily influence the leaders of the future, but outside the limelight of excelling education institutions there is a concerning violation of good practises and rise in unethical behaviour. This book offers diverse insights from 19 different authors, writing from eight countries in five continents, providing explanations and recommendations for the ethical crisis present around the world which can be mitigated by suitable education in ethics, particularly in higher education institutions.
