AKTU announces MPGI as the NODAL CENTER for Subject : Human Values & Professional Ethics.
The need for integrating Human Values in the formal education system has been felt for a long time. This has also been repeatedly emphasized by all commissions and expert committees on education. While most reputed Educational Institutes have started working on the same, it is equally important to equip and impregnate the practicing professionals in various fields, be it Engineering or General Administration with a high degree of professional ethics and human values to help them to make their working more Humane and intrinsically just.
While the need has been acutely felt, the question of 'how to go about it' has not been adequately answered. The initiatives have been taken and conducted experiments in this direction during past 2-3 decades at a few institutions (e.g. IIT-Delhi, IIM-Calcutta, IIT-BHU, PTU-Punjab, Royal University Bhutan, Atmiya Group of Institutions, Rajkot, etc.), and more recently, intensive efforts at IIIT Hyderabad, IIT Kanpur, NIT Raipur etc. These long drawn efforts have finally resulted in the development of an effective methodology, resource material, orientation program and a resource team to introduce Human Values and Professional Ethics impregnation in technical and other organizations. Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the then president of India, has also mentioned on the eve of Independence Day 14th Aug 2006, the importance of Value Education and the work done by this team (details Attached ).
This workshop is particularly relevant for educators who are interested in holistic education and want to develop themselves as a resource person for value education.
To enhance the quality teaching and effective implementation of value education it is required for the faculty / mentors to attend these.
