Do we need ethics training?

Posted on | March 27, 2010 | No Comments

I was involved in the Global Media Ethics Roundtable 2010 last week.

OK, GMER2010 was no TED and not even close to a TEDxDubai, but it was very interesting.

What was interesting about 14 academics talking ethics from the theory through to the practice in broadcasting and a lot in between?

What I realized is that our ethical beliefs are all over the map!

Maybe what we need is ethical thinking to be clearly implemented into our KG through university education AND we need to make sure everyone takes these courses.

If we experimented with ethics in an academic environment I am certain our ethical applications int he real world we live would be far more coherent!

Yes we need ethical training beyond what we get in the home.
