Who the learning day is for: The course is for anyone who works with, or volunteers in, any aspect of social care or education with children or adults, and who experiences professional moral dilemmas. The speakers will work with a variety of methods, including presentations, discussions and reflection in groups.
Moral dilemmas are daily challenges in social pedagogy. Soren and Nicola will introduce a reflection model designed to handle moral dilemmas, and you will get a chance to apply it, reflecting on your own moral dilemmas.
In this course you will:
- Learn a model of reflection for moral dilemmas
- Reflect in groups on moral dilemmas from your own practice
- Learn about the philosophical ethics behind the model
- Discuss important values in social pedagogy
- Learn about the values in social pedagogical practice
After the course you’ll will be able to reflect on moral dilemmas in a way that will lead to ethically grounded and pedagogically tenable ways of action.
