Ethics Committee of Mar Elias College, Kottappady in collaboration with IQAC organized a Seminar on “Professional Ethics” for final year UG and PG students on 23rd February 2022 at the College Auditorium from 9.30am to 1.00 pm. This Seminar aimed at setting standards of the code of ethics which defines the rights and responsibilities of students at the institution. These rights and responsibilities are at the root of the relationship between members of the educational institution and students. Dr. P.K. Sudarshanan delivered the welcome address. Rev. Fr. Shanu. K. Paulose (Professional Educational Counsellor and Psychiatric Social Worker) was the resource person.
The Ethics sets the standards of what’s acceptable and what’s not, therefore, protecting the interest of both teachers and students. The motive of the seminar is not directly teaching ethics for its purpose. It’s objective to deploy this body of knowledge for two motives. The first motive is to grow intellectual dimensions that will authorize students to recognize ethical dimensions of issues and address ethical issues in the field as various as medicines, economics and policy amid others. The second purpose is that it is important to develop critical thinking skills, intentional on one’s purposes, particularly the ability to reflect and the theoretical and practical effect of personal and collective human actions. The session ended by 1pm.
