Developing the Next Generation of Responsible Professionals: Wisdom and Ethics Trump Knowledge and IQ
Sternberg, Robert J.
Psychology Teaching Review, v23 n2 p51-59 2017
In this article, I describe the ACCEL (active concerned citizenship and ethical leadership) model for university education. I then apply it to the teaching of psychology. The goal of the model is to develop university students who are active concerned citizens and ethical leaders, where leaders are viewed as people who make a positive, meaningful, and potentially enduring difference to the world at some level. I discuss the role education can play in developing the elements of ACCEL--creative, analytical, practical, and wise thinking--and I give examples from my own classrooms teaching various aspects of psychology and human development.
