EC712 : The Ethical Teacher

The focus of this course is to see the role of the teacher, and that of the student, as being relational, subjective and fundamentally ethical. The course considers ethics and ethical dilemmas, as well as the ethics of everyday teaching. This includes fundamentals of interacting and engaging with children, from how we welcome children to our centres in the morning and the way that we actively listen and act upon children’s voice, through to how we teach and care for children using respectful and inclusive practices. This course will encourage your critical engagement with fundamental issues of early childhood education that shapes you as a teacher.
