Title: Teachable Moments: Practical Suggestions for Teaching Ethics Across the Curriculum PDF
Url: http://www.meteconline.org/files/pdf/Teachable%20Moments.pdf
Publisher: National Center for Advanced Technological Education
Description: Designed to as a guide to prepare "ethical technologists," Teachable Moments aims to infuse issues of ethics and values into technology education by using "real world" case histories and a cross-disciplinary approach. Based on the premise that ethics and values are best taught when integrated into existing course content, this two-part guide first presents a series of case histories paired with "Teachable Moments" -- those instants in the progress of a course when issues of ethics occur naturally and can be discussed as part of coursework -- then, in the section entitled "Readings, Cases and Codes," applies student technician and professional codes of conduct to another series of case histories to highlight ethical issues that students are likely to encounter both in the classroom and on the job. These cases are offered as models for instructors to follow or to help them craft their own teachable moments within the context of a course. Cases are clustered by disciplines.

Target Audience: 2-4 Year College Faculty/Administrators

Self Evaluation: An excellent resource for addressing the importance of ethics in technology disciplines.
