ABET EC2000 and ET2K both contain requirements for the inclusion of ethics in the engineering curriculum. Many engineering faculty have difficulty knowing how or when to insert ethics and how to measure the effects when they do. This workshop will provide practical experience in the identification and creation of learning objectives related to ethics, teaching strategies to be used, and appropriate assessment techniques. Ethics can be approached on several levels, similar to BloomÂ¿s taxonomy of learning objectives (Bloom, 1956). Students can be taught to recall information, apply ethical principles in a given situation, or to evaluate a situation, extract the required information, and provide appropriate rationale for their decisions. This workshop will help participants decide which approach is appropriate for their situation.
