Description

Choosing to act ethically is a defining feature of being an early childhood professional. It is the complex process of choosing between many right ways – there are often no simple or easy answers. These choices apply in equal measure to the relationships we have with children, families, the community, our colleagues and importantly to the way we understand ourselves and our profession.

As the dimensions of our practice change and the nature of community life become more complex, the need for an ethical framework to inform and shape our professional decisions becomes even more critical. The ECA Code of Ethics provides a guide to assist professionals to make wise decision that build relationships and promote our shared values.  This on-demand webinar will introduce the ECA Code of Ethics and discuss how educators might use the Code to support their everyday decision making.

During the session we will explore:

  • What is ethics and its place in our work?
  • The dimensions of the ECA Code of Ethics and how the Code works.
  • The practice implications for acting in accordance with the ECA Code of Ethics
  • The ethical dilemmas and challenges of our work and how the ECA Code of Ethics can help us make better decisions.
