Development of support program for creating a code of ethics by teachers
Professional ethics is considered, from an individual perspective, "the ability to think systematically about specific ethical issues" and, from a societal perspective, "the rules that are structured interactively between the profession and society". The embodiment of professional ethics is considered to be a code of ethics. However, there is no code of ethics for teachers in Japan. The purpose of this study is to develop a program in which teachers themselves create their own code of ethics. This study aims to help teachers who participate in the program become aware of their own professional ethics and professionalism, and also to create a new dialogue between education and society.


My specialty is psychotherapy, not pedagogy. However, I believe that dialogue that I learned in psychotherapy is also very important in pedagogy. The point of this study is also dialogue. Through this study, I would like to engage in dialogue not only with teachers, but also with many other people.
