Towards Best Practice in Ethics Education for Scholarly Practitioners of Leadership: An Undistorted View of Reality
Reardon, R. Martin
Planning and Changing, v44 n3-4 p286-307 2013
While it is reasonable to surmise that the vast majority of leaders, regardless of whether they are educators in the broad sense of that term, exercise their leadership in accord with sound ethical principles, the regular instances of exceptions to this rule highlight the importance of incorporating the study of ethics in leadership programs. Recent instances of leaders who have acted unethically in educational settings attest to the critical role of ethics education in the education doctorate (EdD). The scholar practitioner emphasis of the EdD envisaged by the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) warrants an approach to ethics education that integrates collaborative action learning, field-based learning, and reflection. This article describes an endeavor to implement best practice in ethics education in a CPED-inspired EdD program, given that the essence of such best practice entails exploring and promoting an undistorted view of reality.
