Ethical Decision Making Workshop held at the Department of English for Technical and Agrobiological Specialities, NULES #globalethicsday2016

Held on 18 October at the Department of English for Technical and Agrobiological Specialities, NULES, the workshop aimed to promote ethical values and professionalism among the technical students.

During the workshop a range of general ethical issues as well as those that relate to the ethical standards of professional conduct were discussed. Students willingly shared their opinions on what ethical principles should underlie the process of decision making in their everyday and professional life.

According to K. Frank, ethics is 'the process of determining what one considers right and wrong.' Right and wrong are the concepts that can vary in different cultural and professional environments, depend on individual circumstances. What is considered to be the right decision in a particular situation may be regarded as wrong in another. To help students deal with this ambiguity, the Code of Ethical Conduct was introduced.

The Event was held within the framework of the third annual Global Ethics Day announced and promoted by Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.
