Teaching Engineering Ethics in the time of COVID-19

The Coronavirus pandemic of the recent weeks has had a huge effect on European society and on Engineering Education. For those interested in thinking about and teaching about technology and ethics in the time of COVID-19, the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, a UK-based charitable body, has collected source material on the following website: https://www.nuffieldbioethics.org/publications/covid-19/covid-19-ethics-resources

The website includes a range of discussion pieces covering topics like:

  • Ethics of surveillance and quarantine
  • Data ethics
  • Making choices in the face of dilemmas
  • Care and kindness in the era of COVID-19

The website also contains links to guidance from the German Ethics Council, UNESCO, WHO as well as a range of other international bodies.
