EDUC 6012: Values in Education (3)

Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0

Teachers and the curriculum explicitly and implicitly communicate values to students. This course explores the area of values in education and considers how schools and teachers develop values in young people, not as a separate activity within schools but as an aspect of education. Individuals will be introduced to philosophical, historical and comparative perspectives of values and ethics in education as they relate to the expectations of education and education of the whole child. Through case studies and readings, the course will examine practical issues surrounding values in education.
