Overcoming Challenges to Infusing Ethics into the Development of Engineers

Deadline to Apply to Workshop on Overcoming Challenges to Infusing Ethics into the Development of Engineers

The National Academy of Engineering Center for Engineering Ethics and Society invites teams to apply to attend a collaborative workshop on addressing obstacles, identifying solutions, and developing institutional plans for effectively incorporating ethics in the curriculum and culture of engineering education.

Through knowledge sharing, mentoring, and active engagement, the workshop will provide information, guidance, and facilitated discussion to help the selected attendees advance their work, improve institutional plans, and develop collaborations with each other and with the speakers and invited guests.

CEES is looking for teams of 2–4 that include faculty, administrators, and/or professors of practice who are actively working on strategies and plans for incorporating ethics into the curriculum and culture of engineering education. To accommodate those unable to form teams a few spots will be reserved for individual attendees. Broad representation is sought among the applicants, to include those from the range of engineering disciplines, the bachelor’s and graduate teaching levels, institutions ranging from liberal arts colleges to large public institutions, and minority-serving institutions.

The workshop will be held January 10–12, 2017, at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, DC. For those invited to attend, the NAE will provide partial support for travel and lodging.

Further information can be found in the application form and frequently asked questions. The application deadline is Monday September 19, 2016. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Frazier Benya at fbenya@nae.edu.
