FAMU ETHICAL VOL. 4: Relationships between teachers and students

Dear FAMU Community,

The FAMU ETHICAL/FAMU ETICKY is slowly but certainly progressing into its second half, and we are inviting you to its fourth instalment. This time, the topic is, Relationships between Teachers and Students. The event will be held in Room U1 on Thursday, 24 November 2022 from 6 pm. Ms Michaela Antonín Malaníková, Ph.D. will be our guest.

  • What can the relationships between students and teachers be like?
  • What forms of the relationships are enriching, what makes them specific, and what is their purpose?
  • What boundaries are proper for such relationships? How about asymmetry?

These and other questions may be part of the discussion. We will use the output from the event for wording the newly prepared FAMU Code of Ethics. Do not miss the opportunity! Everyone across the Faculty community is invited.
