The role of teacher carries with it substantial moral imperatives that often remain invisible and un-discussed––to insure equitable access to learning, for example, or to treat young learners with respect and dignity. At the same time, the teaching profession lacks a clear code of ethics. One goal of the Teacher Education Initiative (TEI) at the University of Michigan is to introduce explicit attention to ethics to our curriculum for learning teaching and to integrate it with our work on social justice and diversity. To this end, our 2008-2009 Teacher Education Seminar Series will focus on professional ethics for teachers and on the challenges of building a corresponding teacher education curriculum.
