Application Form for Workshop on Overcoming Challenges for Infusing Ethics into the Development of Engineers

The 2017 NAE Workshop on Overcoming Challenges for Infusing Ethics into the Development of Engineers will be held at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, DC, from 5 pm on Tuesday January 10 to 3 pm on Thursday January 12.  The workshop is organized around important challenges to infusing ethics into engineering and strategies for overcoming them. The program will consist of a mix of interactive panel discussions and small group work. As the success of the workshop hinges on discussions and interactions, it is expected that all attendees will bring an inquisitive, creative mind, and will actively and constructively contribute to the program.

Those interested in attending are asked to apply as a team of 2-4 members from their institution, ideally including a variety of people such as faculty, administrators, and professors of practice. A team may also include someone from industry who is not at your institution but is partnering with your institution. Applicants will be selected for both the innovativeness and the potential impact of the relevant activity at their institution and beyond. Evidence of your participation in faculty development relative to teaching and learning will also be considered, as will documented success in the classroom.

As a courtesy to the other attendees, it is expected that all attendees will participate in the entire meeting. If you know that you will be unable to attend the entire meeting, please do not apply.

The NAE will provide meals for all attendees, and will pay for lodging and up to $500 for travel expenses for one member of your team. Your institution/team will be responsible for covering the lodging (approximately $179 a night) and airfare of the remaining team members.
