TU/Eindhoven, the Netherlands, 12 – 13 December 2019
The Ethics Special Interest Group of the European Society for Engineering Education (SEFI) is organizing a dedicated workshop on Ethics and Engineering Education. Download the invitation in PDF format
Teachers in engineering faculty face several challenges in teaching ethics. This workshop focusses on mutual support for solving these challenges. The workshop will be clustered around 4 relevant themes. Participants are also invited to identify the issues they would like to address at the workshop with a view to developing solutions they can take ‘back home’.
Participants are invited to propose additional themes, questions or issues to discuss.
>> We will exchange educational methods and discuss adaptation to your context.
>> Different ways of assessing students in ethics courses and evaluating quality (effectiveness, learning goals …) of ethics courses will be shared and possible applications in your context will be discussed.
>> We will strengthen our reflection on and understanding of what engineering ethics is for our current time frame and in your context.
>> We will come up with practical ideas about how teaching of engineering ethics can be informed in your context by the evidence available on how people learn to think, feel and act ethically.
Looking forward meeting you!
