Human Values Cell, IIIT-H and Commissionerate of Technical Education, Hyderabad is organizing a "1-Day Introductory Workshop on Human Values & Professional Ethics" for senior teaching faculty of Govt. Polytechnics of Telangana, to be held on 13 June 2015 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
