Title: Online Curriculum for Science and Engineering Ethics
Url: http://www.umass.edu/sts/ethics/online/home.html
Publisher: University of Massachusetts at Amherst
Description: Created with funds provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the International Dimensions of Ethics Education in Science & Engineering (IDEESE) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst provides high-quality online and classroom-based materials for science and engineering disciplines. This site allows users to access a set of different curricula, complete with cases and related resources based on real events with international ethnical dimensions. There are five online cases here, and they deal with the a variety of controversies, including the SARS virus outbreak and the recruitment of egg donors by South Korean stem cell researchers. Each of the cases comes with a case-situation summary and supporting materials such as interviews, discussion questions, and classroom activities. Engineering students and teachers will find that the breadth of these materials offers a thought-provoking experience designed to complement the more formal scientific materials that are traditionally part of this field of study.
