Free ticketed event
This workshop is for faculty and administrators interested in promoting ethical integrity and more advanced ethical instruction on their campuses. The workshop will be an interactive exploration of the meaning of “ethical development” for engineering students and will be refined from a series (three) of one-day regional workshops being offered in the fall of 2011 as part of an NSF-sponsored research project. The workshop facilitators will introduce participants to a variety of teaching strategies and co-curricular activities that may enhance a students’ ethical development as identified through the NSF sponsored Survey of Engineering Ethical Development (SEED) project. The SEED project was a multi-year national holistic assessment of ethics education in engineering that included measurements of a students’ ethical knowledge, ethical reasoning, and ethical behavior. The investigation included 19 diverse partner institutions and more than 4,000 engineering undergraduates. In addition to the presentation of research results, the audience will be asked to share personal experiences and discuss strategies for adapting identified best practices in different institutional settings. Finally, participants will identify challenges and opportunities for improving ethical decision-making on a national scale.
