Fasoli, Lyn; Woodrow, Chris
Intended as a companion to "Our Code of Ethics at Work" (Anne Stonehouse), this booklet has been written as a resource for people conducting workshops or training sessions in early childhood education. The suggestions provided will assist in making the Australian Early Childhood Association Code of Ethics more concrete and help early childhood educators see how the code can be applied to their real working lives. The ideas and activities presented will be a useful resource to wide variety of people who are involved in professional development and are concerned with the provision of quality programs in early childhood, including workshop leaders, tertiary educators, and children's services directors. The booklet outlines or describes: (1) a variety of activities that might be used in workshop sessions, (2) some hints on getting sessions started, (3) some suggestions for ongoing or follow up projects or work, (4) some ideas for session evaluation, (5) an annotated bibliography of useful reading and resources, and (6) a collection of examples of typical ethical dilemmas. These dilemmas are numbered and are referred to throughout the booklet as examples of situations that might be given to illustrate a point or start discussions. The workshop activities are grouped under three headings according to the role they might play in facilitating participant involvement. They are: consciousness-raising, role plays, and debates. (TJQ)
