About the Course:

Professor Nucci is going to give a short-term course (20 credit-hours) talking about moral education from the perspective of social cognition theory, mainly based on his own book  Nice is not enough: Facilitating moral development. The first part of the course will focus on ``theories``, including the goal of moral education, Piaget’s and Kohlberg’s stage theory of moral development, domain theory’s distinction among morality, convention and the personal, defining moral character, emotion development as moral wellbeing. The latter part will lead us to  educational ``practices``, discussing detailed moral education strategies in schools and classrooms.  The course is open to all faculties of BNU.
