What is this project about?
This multi-campus proposal, led by Dr Anna-Marie Greaney (Lecturer, Department of Nursing and Healthcare Sciences), seeks to explore ethics teaching and learning.
It will establish a Learning Community for any colleagues interested in developing the teaching of ethics to help understand how this work can be applied across MTU.
The project will pilot activity within some existing modules that have professional and regulatory requirements including: Engineering; Nursing; Social Care. The professional and regulatory basis of the disciplines is a key focus, together with action-oriented ethics based on the Giving Voice to Values (GVV) work of American academic Mary Gentile.
Project Launch event: Tuesday 5th October (14.00 – 15.00 via Zoom)
To learn about Giving Voice to Values (GVV): An innovative approach to values-driven leadership, we held a session delivered by Professor Mary C. Gentile (Ph.D.), creator/director of Giving Voice to Values and the Richard M. Waitzer Bicentennial Professor of Ethics at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business.
The session formally launched the recently funded SATLE 2020 project: Professional Ethics at MTU: Giving Voice to Values (GVV) in an Irish Context.
We were delighted to welcome Professor Mary C. Gentile to lead the session. Among numerous other awards, Mary was named one of the "Top Thought Leaders in Trust: 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award Winners" by Trust Across America-Trust Around the World, January 2015, one of the "Top Minds 2017" in ethics leadership by Compliance Week and was recently inducted into the “Thinkers50 Hall of Fame”.
Her most recent text: 'Giving Voice to Values: An Innovation and Impact Agenda' (Goodstein and Gentile 2021) reflects on the success of GVV to date, and shifts attention to the future of GVV providing insights from practitioners and experts in business ethics and the professions on the possibilities for sustaining its growth and success.
This project is part of MTU’s ‘Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement’ funding from the National Forum, coordinated by the Teaching and Learning Unit.
