APEE workshop titled "Orientation to Ethics and Its application in Education" on March 15, 2014

 Association for Promoting Ethics in Education (APEE)

Organizing a workshop on

Orientation to Ethics and Its application in Education

Ethics is a normative science which focuses on the study of human conduct. The conduct does not include those unwilled activities like breathing, circulation of blood or sleepy conditions etc. Conduct may include inward activities like motives or desires as well as outward activities like speech and movements of doer’s limbs and so these will fall within the sphere of ethics. There is not a single movement of a day when an individual is not engaged in doing or thinking something. It is an endless process which goes on all through one’s life.

The question arises when one is confronted with the veracity of activity: right or wrong. This relates to morality and schools have a fundamental role to guide students in determination of the veracity of their actions. The ultimate success is predicted on the soundness of their social conduct with fellow beings. The schools are to promote pro-social thoughts, values and behaviors among students to act as good citizen. The aim should be finding some way to help student develop good habits and virtues. Holy Quran is the best source which helps schools develop a sense of responsibility in students and motivate them seek goodness in life.
