The past century and the new one
Students and professionals in all disciplines may be excused for feeling that their colleges, universities and institutions require them to learn more about other disciplines that may or may not be directly to their studies or professions. In the past century, there was little interest in studying disciplines like ethics, integrity, epidemiology, sociology, statistics, governance, leadership and management as well as areas like medical law, research integrity and publication ethics; nevertheless most of the foundation of these areas, in recent history, were established in that century. Nowadays, these disciplines, although fairly young, are developing side by side with all the major sciences and their applications are numerous. Unfortunately, there is still a lot to learn from these developing sectors in life.
This education and training organisation was established by prominent UK academics with the primary aim of introducing courses and training programmes that covers these areas. Furthermore, it was agreed to develop these courses and programmes to become fully online to allow people from all over the world to access them at a much reduced costs. This will also be of real convenience to individuals who are unable to physically attend a course due to many reasons, nearly all related to the fast life rhythm. Halbert Education & Training courses are all approved and regularly assessed and monitored by the Publication Integrity & Ethics with the aim to achieve the following:
> To develop the knowledge and understanding of how these disciplines have developed and evolved in our time.
> To enable the candidates to understand the scope of these disciplines in relation to established and other major sciences.
> To enable the candidates to appreciate the impact of these disciplines on our way of life and everyday living.
> To enable the candidates to appreciate the “special considerations” that arises in relation to these disciplines and how it affects our way of thinking and its impact on the society.
> To allow the candidates to develop the ability to reflect and critically evaluate the evidence arising in these discipline every day.
> To support the candidates’ abilities as independent learners.
