The Teaching of Ethics and the Ethics of Teaching.
Matthews, Janet R.
This presentation covers the topic of psychological ethics from two perspectives. One part of the presentation considers how ethics is presented in the classroom through both textbook consideration and specifically designed courses. The other part of the presentation considers ethical issues as they are related to the activity of teaching. Each of the basic 10 ethical principles established by the American Psychological Association is addressed as it relates to teaching. These principles are: (1) responsibility, (2) competence, (3) moral and legal standards, (4) public statements, (5) confidentiality, (6) welfare of the consumer (student), (7) professional relationships, (8) assessment techniques, (9) research with human participants, and (10) care and use of animals (research). Suggestions for future additions to these principles are provided. (JD)
