Overcoming Challenges to Infusing Ethics into the Development of Engineers Workshop

This workshop convened current and emerging leaders in ethics and engineering who are working to improve the ethical development of engineering students. Attendees shared their work, experiences, and lessons learned; discussed strategies for overcoming institutional and cultural challenges; and developed plans and collaborations for advancing efforts to infuse ethics into the development of engineers. Formal sessions gave attendees insight into effective practice and scholarship on creating cultural, institutional, and pedagogical change. Attendees also had both informal and guided opportunities to strategize and develop plans for incorporating ethics in engineering curricula. The information, expertise, mentoring, and facilitated discussions and collaboration at the workshop helped attendees advance their work and develop effective plans for their own institutions.
