Why Should Business Education Care About Care? Toward an Educare Perspective
AbstractThis article considers the potential contribution of care ethics in business education through the lens of a new perspective, called "educare." This paper will first give a definition of educare as a pedagogical strategy which aims to make all students free to care. We will then look at why the educare strategy is relevant for business ethics education, given the intense challenges it is presently facing. Lastly, we will see how educare could be implemented effectively through service-learning.
