From Ethics, Integrity and Moral Probity to Responsible Research and Innovation in Current Educational Practices | Laura Monica GORGHIU
Abstract: As other social domains, the area of education is in a strong interdependence with environmental contexts, being in accordance with the economic conditions, political decisions, technological development and, not in the end, the demographic dynamics. Changes in all the above-mentioned aspects lead to modification of several educational variables. However, the actual educational settings and practices must take into consideration the future, projecting and addressing in this respect, the major challenges that will occur in the society in the following decades. In education, there were recorded a series of changes in theoretical frameworks or paradigms over the past decades. We have to admit that not all of them proved to be good or welcome, mostly in the cases when some of them were introduced considering the temporary social changes, limiting their evolution to a specific era or developmental goal or educational cult (Lindgren, 2013). But, it is obvious that paradigms or concepts which answer to the actual societal developments, which help the students in the process of becoming future responsible citizens, are more than welcome and beneficial. In this respect, this number of the Romanian Journal of Multidimensional Education tries to offer some answers to possible educational values of equity, integrity or relevance principles, together with the possibilities of exploiting the dimensions of Responsible Research and Innovation in the actual education.
