  4. Human Values course developed 1995-2004 "A Foundation Course on Human Values & Professional Ethics", has been designed by Dr. RR Gaur, Prof. R Sangal & Shri. GP Bagaria It has been designed to be a part of the academic curriculum: 1. To develop a critical ability to distinguish between essence and form; or between what is of value and what is superficial in life (to appreciate the importance of fundamental issues related to their happiness and real success in the life & profession). What makes it interesting & challenging is the fact that the ability is to be developed not for anarrow area or field of study, but for everyday situations in life. It covers the widestpossible canvas. 2. To move from discrimination to commitment (to develop sensitivity and awareness leading to commitment and courage to act on the basis of their own understanding, rather than merely on the basis of assumptions) It is not sufficient to develop the discrimination ability, it is important to acton such discrimination in a given situation on their own right.

  5. Human Values course developed 1995-2004 It follows a process of self verification, on the basis of one’s own Natural Acceptance, leading to self-empowerment It does not teach values. It encourages students to discover what they consider valuable. Accordingly, they should be able to discriminate between valuable and the superficial in real situations in their life. It facilitates discussion on: Their life goals, reflection on what they are and what they want to be Their relationships in family Their relationships with society Their relationships with nature/existence It is not a process of assuming nor a process of do’s & don’ts

  6. Human Values Programme introduced at IIIT Hyderabad in 2005 Goal of IIIT: To contribute to transforming industry and society, by delivering research-led education, promoting innovation, and fostering human values Human Values is as an essential part of the academic curriculum. The two courses are HV1 in 1stsem & HV2 in 4thsem • Each week consists of 2 lectures of 1.5 hrs each • Students do socially relevant humanities projects, detailed studies, reports or participate in social activities as a part of this course • Students meet every week in small groups along with 2 faculty mentors • At the end of the course a 4-day workshop is conducted. Faculty, faculty spouses and senior students take the responsibility for conducting it Advanced courses include “Work & Life” & “Searching for a Humane Society” Medium of instruction is students’ mother tongue/language preferred by the student (e.g. in 2010 six workshops were run in parallel – 1 in Telugu, 2 in Hindi and 3 in English)

  7. HE President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s Message to the Nation – 2006 Dr. Kalam, the then President of India, had 4 personal discussions about this, recognized its potential and spoke about the effort in his address to the nation on the eve of Independence Day in Aug 2006 “… being practiced by Prof Ganesh Bagaria, … Prof Rajeev Sangal… and their teams … [it] is a ‘teachable human value based skill’… This process of imparting self-knowledge would promote a learning atmosphere, where this whole movement of inquiry into knowledge, into oneself, into the possibility of something beyond knowledge would bring about naturally a psychological revolution.. From this comes inevitably a totally different order in human relationship and therefore society as a whole. The intelligent understanding of this process itself can bring about a profound change in the consciousness of mankind…” (VIDEO 3 min) Source:

  16. Human Values Course in Professional Education HV is essential for all It is introduced in professional education: • These students will step into society & start contributing soon. With an overview, some of them will be able to participate in the family and society in a more meaningful manner. Some of them can take the right understanding into education, as parents or teachers • In professional education, the system is active - there are students, teachers, curriculum, classes, exams take place and taken quite seriously. Only the content and process of education needs to be updated. So there is a possibility for right education to start • The syllabus of schools is influenced by what is taught in professional colleges
