The OEC site is designed to engage and serve those who promote learning and advance the understanding of responsible research and practice in engineering and science. It recognizes the individuals and organizations that have provided guidance, reviewed submissions, contributed resources for the OEC (or related activities of the Center for Engineering Ethics and Society), and/or contributed to the goals of the site. Posted profiles can inform those interested in careers in ethics education in engineering and science and may suggest opportunities for collaboration and partnership. The OEC Community Feed announces events, developments, and new members and resources posted to the site. The Projects page provides information about current activities of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that address ethics issues in science and engineering.

    Abstract: The Strategic Defense Initiative provides a context for exploring the ethical issues that arise when scientific research has a direct bearing on public policy. Students are asked to consider three different documents that were circulated during the first few years of the SDI program. ...

  • Please join The National Academies for a webcast on Monday, May 7, from 10:30am to 1:30 pm ET to learn about the release of the new report, The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education: Branches from the Same Tree, which analyzes the benefits of undergraduate and graduate experiences that effectively integrate STEM, Arts, and Humanities. The report is the culmination of a two-year study that examined the evidence behind the assertion that more integrated educational experiences can better prepare graduates for life and work. Learn more about this study and report and register for the webcast.

    The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) will host the webinar "Developing Ethics Skills in the Classroom" on Wednesday, April 11, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Eastern Time.

    Webinar Description:
    Knowing what is right (moral development) and doing the right thing on a particular occasion (moral behavior) do not always align. Contextual factors can greatly influence how engineers choose to apply their ethical standards. Engineering education should help future engineering professionals identify and navigate complex ethical situations in the workplace and beyond. In this webinar, Daniel D. Burkey and Michael F. Young (University of Connecticut) will describe a Cards Against Humanity-like card game that faculty can employ in the classroom to encourage students’ awareness of contextual ethics decisions and create a large classroom context for discussing complex issues of engineering ethical dilemmas.

    This webinar is free but registration is required...
