Developing character while learning. Global citizenship in the classroom
The further we push the frontiers of research, the more urgent it becomes to answer questions concerning the impact of our progress on humankind and our environment. This is why it is increasingly necessary to ensure that students are able to grapple with the ethical questions which will undoubtedly arise in their working life. These questions will require them to work with others and to examine their own assumptions as well as the role they play in answering these questions. In this Refresh Teaching event, we aim to provide examples of how the subject of ethics and personal values can be explicitly addressed in ETH courses.
Our speakers on the day are Prof. Dr. Thomas Bernauer, Dr. Claude Garcia and Dr. Sybille Zürcher. They will discuss their perspectives on the importance of student character development and share insights from their own experience.
