Confronting Professional Values and Ethical Issues: An Innovative Session on Development of a Casebook on Ethics and Integrity. Innovative Session 4. [Concurrent Innovative Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
Burns, Janet Z.; Hatcher, Tim; Russ-Eft, Darlene
The Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD) Standards on Ethics and Integrity, which were first presented in 1999, constituted one of three new initiatives to take the AHRD to a new level of leadership in the HRD profession. Although the initial standards were intentionally brief and easy to read, their application in specific situations may be difficult. Because no comprehensive guide to understanding and applying the standards exists for teaching purposes or for use by individual HRD professionals, the standards' authors are currently compiling an agenda to publish documents supporting the standards. The first such document will be a casebook designed to ensure that the standards are understood and used by the HRD community of scholars and practitioners. The casebook will present a comprehensive range of contemporary ethical issues in HRD that are integral and unavoidable aspects of AHRD members' professional role. The case study methodology is particularly well-suited to the complex and multidimensional nature of the task of applying standards in specific ethical situations; it offers a method for collaborative discussion and problem defining and solving; and it can be used to prepare novice and preservice HRD students for the realities of the HRD profession.
