What do we mean when we talk about ethics? Is it behaviour towards others, rules and regulations, professional codes of conduct or is it regulatory guidelines for areas of specialisation, such as research involving people or animals? In higher education it is all these things and more. There are a range of approaches to teaching ethics. While the University’s regulatory framework for ethics is comprehensive and readily accessible, PACE unit convenors have also identified the need for a suite of resources that cover the more nebulous area of ethical practice in pedagogy and workplace contexts. As a result, PACE have developed a set of resources that can be utilised by unit convenors to support students going on a range of activities, be they local, international or on campus.
