Human Values Cell, IIIT-H and Commissionerate of Collegiate Education (CCE), Govt. of Telangana is organizing a "4-Day Introductory Workshop on Human Values & Professional Ethics" to be held from 09 to 12 Dec 2014 at IIIT Hyderabad.
Today's technical education, in its widely prevalent form, is not able to adequately empower students to
think independently. Consequently, being driven by peer pressure, it is leading to a blind race for jobs
that are intellectually and mentally unfulfilling, and wealth that breeds chaos in family and in society.
However, education is not just about learning skills (how to) but also about developing the ability to decide on what (what to do?) and why (why to do?). It should lead to the development of critical ability in students towards distinguishing between essence and form, or between what is of value and what is superficial, in life. More Info
