The Rock Ethics Institute and the Eberly College of Science: Ethics Seminars for ECoS Faculty

Bioethics header

The Rock Ethics Institute, in collaboration with the Eberly College of Science (ECoS), has developed an ethics workshop for ECoS faculty. The goal of the workshop initiated in 2011, is to work with ECoS faculty to develop and strengthen the knowledge and skills needed to introduce ethics into their disciplinary courses. The workshop provides an overview of ethical frameworks, concepts, and principles as well as techniques for identifying and addressing ethical issues.

The focus of the workshop is on the identification and development of course-specific ethics topics relevant to ECoS faculty and their students. Significant effort is directed toward identifying effective pedagogical approaches for integrating ethics into existing courses. A cohort of faculty participants from each of the seven departments in the college as well as from Forensics meet for one week at the start of each summer.

These workshops provide guidance to faculty for enhancing the ethical awareness of their students: an increasingly important facet of professionalism in science. It also supports the vision of the Eberly College of Science to be a vibrant scientific and educational community internationally renowned for excellence in education and research and for improving the world through its students, its discoveries, and its outreach.
