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. Learn about all of ASEE's upcoming webinars at asee.org/conferences-and-events/webinar-series.
