Towards pedagogy of giving for wellbeing and social engagement

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


Can values education improve student wellbeing and learning outcomes? This research question was at the heart of a case study of values education in an Australian mid-sized, metropolitan high school. Using a combination of action research and statistical analysis of school data such as test scores and records about student behaviour this chapter argues that exploring, critiquing and articulating shared values in schools have transformational powers in terms of social and academic development – for teachers as well as students.
