Description: The pandemic generated by COVID-19 changed the way education is delivered to students, with universities moving their teaching and assessment activities online. This SEFI seminar aims to explore how traditional methods employed in engineering ethics education can be adapted online and also how online teaching can transform the scope and goals set for engineering ethics instruction. The topics raised for discussion include the teaching and assessment of engineering ethics online, learning goals in online engineering ethics education, fostering student engagement and introducing new teaching tools and instruments.

Structure: Individual presentations of ~10 min each, followed by discussion


  • Justin Hess, Purdue University, USA: Considerations for Teaching Engineering Ethics in an Online Modality
  • Maha Bali, University of Cairo, Egypt: Teaching ethics online using “Theater of the Oppressed” and “Liberating Structures”
