Globalizing engineering ethics education through web-based instruction


Conference Paper

ABET Engineering Criteria (EC) 2000 specify that engineering colleges and universities must ensure all students understand their professional and ethical responsibilities upon graduation. This paper will discuss the strategies used in developing and teaching an online engineering ethics class developed in part to meet this requirement Web-based instruction can provide the opportunity to bridge both distance and cultural gaps, which makes it uniquely suited to connect engineering ethics communities both in the United States as well as globally. In addition, the effectiveness of this web-based approach in teaching ethics win be discussed as well as how this approach can be extended to include international student representation.
