Call for papers | Issue 4(2024): Ethical, Regulative and Legislative Perspectives on Emerging Technologies and Education


[Call for paper – JEHE Issue 4(2024), May-June: publications@globethics.net]

Ethical considerations in emerging technologies for education entails clear options on at least four different sets of concepts.

  1. Emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) are transforming the landscape of education. However, their adoption raises ethical questions.

One challenge lies probably in obtaining informed consent from students in the changing environment of the places where they study, in close interaction with AI technological innovations.

  1. There are regulations and legal perspectives that both bring solutions but also challenges.
  2. Education and science, as distinct from technology, may need to be redefined from a philosophical perspective.
  3. Technologies of information open a new dimension on regulatory and legal aspects in relation to bringing more justice on a global scale.

Current Issue

No. 3 (2023): Time for Education
Time for Education: JEHE 3(2023)

Issue 3(2023) of the Journal of Ethics in Higher Education is a collection of twelve articles in three parts: first, thematic papers related to the title of the Issue “Time for Education”; second, a non-thematic section, and third, book reviews.
In the first part, the Issue explores various aspects of time in education, philosophy, and ethical implications. It delves into philosophical inquiries about time, discussing McTaggart's paradox and its roots. Byung-Chul Han's views on temporal experiences in modernity are highlighted, examining the impact on thinking and learning. Wilhelm von Humboldt's influence on education and the relevance of ethics in educational transformation are also explored, as time is translated into a transformative and human capacity. In this first part, the role of a philosophy of time is emphasised in understanding paradoxes and guiding educational transformations. The key role of our perception of the future and the role of a humanistic education focusing on the most vulnerable persons are explored. Additionally, the papers discuss the transformative power of education as poetic engagement with short aphoristic reflections pointing out the possibility of an ethical evolution in time.
In the second, non-thematic part, two articles analyse the use of AI in higher education and the challenges of AI on academic integrity. A third contribution puts the focus on the context of gender in education, and highlights challenges in the DR Congo regarding the vulnerability of women due to cultural norms. One article is a case study of ethical education in Yezreel Valley College (Israel).
In the final section, the first book review looks at the African context: religious communities and sustainable environmental engagements in the Southern African context. The second review is global in scope, highlighting the findings of the 30 Years Report on practical ethics by The Business Ethics Center of Corvinus University, Budapest (Hungary).
