The double helix of values education and quality teaching

Terry Lovat, Ron Toomey
Terry Lovat is Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education and Arts) at the University of Newcastle, and Chief Investigator on the ACDE VEGSP and Values Materials and Resources Project. Ron Toomey is an Adjunct Professor at the Centre for Lifelong Learning at ACU, and also manages various aspects of ACDE Values Education Projects.
Quality teaching and quality learning flow naturally from placing values at the centre of a school’s ethos and operations. By making the teaching of values an explicit and central part of teaching we tend to create a climate in which intellectual depth, communicative competence, empathic character, reflection, self-management and self-knowledge can flourish.
