The E4J Modules on Anti-Corruption, Integrity and Ethics

The E4J initiative seeks to integrate rule of law topics into the curricula of universities and schools worldwide by creating teaching materials that educators can use in class. As part of these efforts, E4J developed 14 University Modules on Anti-Corruption [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab.

I have quite high hope for these modules.
I'm hoping that lecturers, the faculty, would find it easier to put in ethical content in their courses, even if they don't normally teach ethics. And I'm hoping that will have an impact on the way the students see themselves and live their lives beyond their practice or the professions that they do.
What we're looking forward to is your using the modules that are being developed, and inspiring your peers to use these modules also in education.
Coming up with these E4J modules that will be available open access globally gives instructors and students a tremendous advantage. We have experts here at today's meeting from 30 countries around the world, and there are many others who have contributed to these. So, whether you're teaching in Kazakhstan, South Africa, the US, or anywhere else, you'll have access to the combined knowledge of a lot of people globally.
The advantage of these modules is that they're tailored specifically to people and to courses that are not about ethics primarily. They're about the various topics for which ethics is a part, a crucial part, of this story.
What we're trying to be is a framework where all people can use bits of this stuff.
There is a wealth of information there so that they can pick and choose and really tailor something that's going to resonate well for the students that they have in their class.
The exercise, I think that's our strongest point.
You're able to communicate with your students, not merely didactically by taking a lecture and trying to communicate it in a very one-way typical traditional fashion, but actually engaging in a series of exercises and practices, such that the students learn through doing, not just from hearing.
I can imagine that many people will benefit from that.
Every once in a while, one of them will come off to me and say, you know, that class I did on ethics, it actually helped me this week.
I feel optimistic about it. I think they are so exciting.
