Download and read online Creating Values in Life in PDF and EPUB Unfortunately, very few people these days talk about real values in life. What we stand for in life, and are we living up to these values are worth pondering. Are our aspirations in tune with the real purpose of life? It is the values that remind us often what to aspire in life. Most people value life and its achievements from the perspective of wealth and richness, but do not recognize trust, honesty, and contentment as forward looking attributes that help in overall satisfaction. Giving importance to external growth leaving behind inner development often leads to unbalance in life devoid of overall satisfaction. Much of the troubles in this world are that true values of life have narrowed down, skewed, ignored and misunderstood. This book deliberates different aspects of life in terms of personal, moral, spiritual, family and social values and how these can enrich life and fill its purpose. A wide range of topics include How to live an easier life; Thoughts on simplifying life; Virtues of Integrity; Mistakes we generally make; Control on impulsive mind; Being Successful in life; Benefits from silence; Communication with inner self; Creating love for others; How to think positive; How moral values get reinforced; Belief in natural justice; What is spirituality; Understanding self; How to find God; What does death mean to us; Good family values; Being part of whole universe; Universal brotherhood; Towards developing good values. Attempt has been made to describe large issues that are outcome of misdirected value system, and how best a person can move ahead in life by focusing on core values. The idea of writing this book is to facilitate readers to pause and think about what they aspire, and are these aspirations in tandem with broad purpose in life.

Download and read online The ABC s of Values in PDF and EPUB from women’s place being in the home, to &nbs p  her place being CEO of corporations; from a struggle &nbs p  to succeed in life, to the responsibilities it entails, “The &nbs p  ABC’s of Values” deals with ideas and ideals that are &nbs p  essential in living life. &nbs p  The transformation of society is inevitable, leading to &nbs p  an older generation’s questioning the new. But some ways of interacting with others, keeping reasonable and responsible standards, is vital to living a good and fulfilled life in every generation. The words chosen in “The ABC’s of Values” and their short, insightful evaluation, can encourage contemplation on how to be a better person and live a better life. The book does not pass judgment on the present or glorify the past, but tries to evaluate actions and attitudes that can improve an individual and society. Words abound in today’s society, on radio, television, telephone, on iPods and are not necessarily significant. This book takes important or ordinary words and explores their meaning and ways in which they can explain a difficulty, en- courage action, or explore a positive component. Words have meaning, and what they mean can help us lead a better life and be a better person. Each word in the book is accompanied by a famous quotation. Each word is aimed at encouraging the reader to enjoy a happy, successful, life of good humor, good friends, good times, doing good things for yourself and those who share it with you. The ABC’s of Values makes it clear that goodness is not always present, but a good attempt at recognizing difficulties and dealing with them makes it possible to live and enjoy a good life.

Download and read online Values in Higher Education Teaching in PDF and EPUB Values in Higher Education Teaching explores the way in which teaching, research, learning and higher education are a values enterprise and that an exploration of values is necessary to work out the full purposes of a higher education to guide practices and help academics understand academic work. Values inform thinking and actions and although this is well recognized, values are seldom brought to the forefront of inquiries as practices in higher education are developed. This book argues that by putting values firmly on the agenda of those who teach, work and learn in higher education the academic profession can open up new spaces for value conversations and potentially transform the way in which they practice. Values in Higher Education Teaching is key reading for university lecturers, those with responsibility for leadership and management of higher education and postgraduates studying for higher degrees in higher education. There are few books that directly address the broad and complex question of values in teaching in higher education yet at the same time values are widely recognised as permeating all our practices. In this sense an accepted part of academic life remains in the realm of ‘taken for granted’ rather than being consciously and explicitly explored and practiced. The book deals with the idea of values in both a philosophical and practical manner. It is based on original research and uses both empirical data and theory to address teaching values in higher education and the current values of the higher education system. It explores what academics have valued historically in teaching and also addresses the major reforms of the last 20 years. Reforms have essentially changed the nature of western higher education but have made little real difference to the outcomes for student learning and society whereas teaching with values in all subjects has the potential to radically alter student experiences.
