This discussion is going to unpack key ethical principles that need to be considered when carrying out educational research in early childhood settings within Aotearoa New Zealand.

People in all form of life constantly face many issues in ethics and it’s a never ending battle as to what path they will take when there put into ethical situations. In ethical decision making the core values and principles are imperative in the decision making process. The Right decision isn’t always one that is black and white but being strong in their core values is key to how to dealing with ethical dilemmas. I feel that knowing your core values is essential in making the right ethical decisions.
In this project I am asked to reflect on what ethics means to me. Not only in my personal life but also in a work setting, and in our society. During our reflection I am asked to give multiple personal examples to support my meaning of ethics. Lastly I will connect the three questions together with a conclusion that I hope will help a reader understand the subject of ethics.
In his writing, A Practical Companion to Ethics, Anthony Weston explains people are more judgmental and it causes a lot more problems than solutions. Anthony Weston feels Ethics requires us to be mindful thinkers, because it helps fight unjust prejudgment. I personally feel this could help fix court systems, federal, and state wide corruption. Most importantly being a mindful thinker could help businesses. There are so many reasons that could fall under Anthony’s theory. Getting to know the author and his work. I feel his mindful thinking is to reach out to others and interact with more people in an expressive way. Weston believes this will help our community progress in a positive manner towards others. I think he feels ethics requires us
Henrietta Lacks, a woman that died of cervical cancer in 1951, single handedly changed the field of science. Not long before she passed away, a doctor took a sample of her cancer cells, the cells from her cervix were later on named HeLa cells, and these cells helped pave the way to numerous experiments and research all over the world. Even though HeLa brought along many achievements with its discovery, it also brought disappointments to some researchers, and pain for her family. You see, she nor her family consented to her cells being sampled, or the amounts of experiments and research that occurred after. Her family was never aware that such actions even took place. Even so, on February 1st, 1951, the day Henrietta Lacks walked in to John
My personal code of ethics has helped me achieve my goals in life and do well in school. Whenever I have to do something that is important to me, I make sure to keep my code of ethics in mind. My code of ethics comes from the values my parents have imposed on me and the lessons they have taught me throughout my life. Whenever I make a mistake or get in trouble, they make sure I understand what I did wrong and make sure I understand the consequences that I will endure if something like that happens again. The mistakes I have made helped me realize that I need to take responsibility for my actions. My principles have developed with my experiences as well. For example, during a tennis tournament that I played in last year, I had to compete against a girl that was very good athlete and won many more tournaments that I have participated in. Even though I knew I would lose, I didn’t give up after the first game; I continued
I, Rob Geis, commit myself to the code and values that I am about to describe. As a person I have vast life experiences that have affected who I am and what I believe in. As a Public Relations professional it seems that our industry is often under ridicule for being unethical and known as spin doctors. As an ethical student and person I consider these key values as guiding stones to my applied ethical choices. Family, friends, school and religion have all made me the person I am today and influence my ethical choices.
One of my personal values is kindness/compassion, which contains the same characteristics of my professional value of compassion/caring. Moreover, some of my personal values that I believe encompass aspects of integrity are respect, honesty, and loyalty. When practicing integrity, especially the equality component, someone can show respect for others and it allows for better cooperation when working with others. Additionally, to have integrity, someone must be honest because integrity is being truthful even when it may be challenging to do so. Loyalty and integrity relate because both values incorporate a strong commitment. For loyalty, the commitment may be to a person, company, etc., and for integrity, the commitment is to the truth. However, both values are best practiced if used together. Loyalty is best used when integrity is first considered. Integrity creates noble character and when preceding loyalty, it aids in someone making more just decisions. Lastly, I believe that if I combine and follow all these values, I can achieve my personal value of
ASHA code of Ethics, Principle of Ethics II deals primarily with individual maintenance in relation to one’s profession. Rules of Ethics B specifically states that an individual who does not hold his or her Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) cannot practice clinical services; yet one who is in the process of acquiring this certificate can if in abidance with local and state laws.
My personal ethical lens is the Rights and Responsibility lens. I balance my reasoning skills and instinct to determine how to satisfy my duties while achieving the greatest good for everyone (autonomy). The Right and Responsibility lens was the most favorable out of the four that were listed. I value autonomy (such as freedom and independence) over equality (such as fairness and justice). An ethical person, can make certain responsible choices that will benefit other individuals at the same time. One of my primary concerns is to protect individual rights, but guarantee everyone in the community justice. Each person has a right to do whatever please outside of work and to control information about their private lives. I agree with most of my
I have found over the years that integrity, character, and ethics go hand-in-hand. When the culture of an organization is to do the right thing no matter what it tends to flow into a good ethical behavior. The Rotary Club is an organization that local businesses join. One of the questions that were always asked of members when deciding on an item was is it the truth. If the culture of the organization were to always, make sure it was the truth whatever the subject matter may be, that would lend itself to good ethical behavior as well.
The formal definition of ethics is as follows, moral principles that govern a person’s behaviour or the conducting of an activity or alternatively the branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles. (Ethics definition: dictionary.com, 2014)
