UPF-Australia Publishes ‘Educating with Values’ Report

Melbourne, Australia—UPF-Australia has published the report, “Educating with Values: A Holistic Approach to Integrating Values in Education.”  


The content of the report includes the contributions of presenters and participants who took part in the Values Education Summits UPF-Australia and the International Association of Academicians for Peace (IAAP)-Oceania held online between 2021 and 2022. The contributors come from the academic; primary, secondary and tertiary education; business; and community sectors.


The report argues that three teaching and learning domains facilitate the development of values. These are learning, wellbeing and service, all of which are underpinned by values education. Therefore, a holistic values-based education needs to foster:


  • intellectual and creative abilities,

  • emotional and social abilities that underpin wellbeing and connection with others, and

  • service learning through community or public service that supports personal development and the common good.


The report also highlights key benefits of values education to students and society, in terms of wellbeing, healthy relationships, community harmony and significantly improved learning outcomes, to name a few.


It has been covered in media, including the Herald Sun (Melbourne) and The Advertiser (Adelaide) newspapers, and featured on the Australian Arabic Council’s website.
