  • Workshop - Integrating professional issues into the technical curriculum: Teaching students about the challenge of professionalism and ethics in an increasingly automated world living with sophisticated machines

    In support of ACM's and the IEEE's commitment to professionalism, the ACM Committee on Professional Ethics, a technical co-sponsor of this conference, is presenting a workshop designed to help faculty provide students with tools to better understand and to better resolve their ethical challenges as professionals. This workshop will have a special focus on issues raised by robots, Google Glass, and other increasingly sophisticated devices. The workshop will use both lecture and small group activities to introduce and enhance participants' teaching skills in computer and engineering ethics. Leaders will present materials to be used in a complete professional ethics course, and that can also be integrated as examples and exercises into specific technical courses. The materials will include case studies, suggested course syllabi, and suggestions for creating and grading assignments. The workshop will feature demonstrations of several advanced devices, and how they can be used to teach about ethics, and to attract attention to ethical issues.

  • Tribes, boundaries, and intellectual silos: Science, technology, and engineering ethics education in the departmentalized world of academia

    In theory, science, technology, and engineering ethics lies at the intersection of these STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields and the disciplines of philosophy and/or religion. However, empirical studies suggest that there is relatively little interaction between those teaching courses such as bioethics or engineering ethics in biology or engineering departments and their counterparts in philosophy or religion departments. An analysis of the professors in academia suggests that most participate in one, and only one community of scholars. In order to address these concerns, the authors propose a number of possible solutions, including increased availability of philosophic and religious ethics instruction for STEM professors and of STEM education for religion and philosophy professors. In addition, structural changes in universities to encourage and promote interdisciplinary scholarship and team-teaching.

  • Workshop - Assessing science and engineering ethics outcomes: An interactive review of tools

    There remain many opportunities to enhance how the ethical dimensions of science and engineering are taught and assessed. In fact, current trends suggest growing demand for STEM professionals who can deftly navigate the wide range of moral and ethical issues that might be faced during their careers, whether in the private, academic, government, and/or non-profit sectors. Yet even when high quality instructional interventions are developed and delivered, there often remain unanswered questions about their relative effectiveness. Valid and reliable assessment tools are sorely needed to better evaluate whether our students and practitioners not only have sufficient background understanding related to science and engineering ethics, but can apply this knowledge in real-world situations. This highly interactive panel session is organized around presentations from three complementary efforts to develop high quality assessment instruments focused on science and engineering ethics. Background details for each instrument will be provided, including sample questions that the audience will be invited to complete. The primary audience for this panel includes educators and researchers looking for new ways to teach, assess, and investigate ethics outcomes in a wide variety of science and engineering fields.

  • Ethics and compliance in corporations: values based approach

    In the corporate world, one comes across titles such as Ethics Counsellor, Compliance Officer, Ethics and Compliance Officer, Ethics Officer and many others. Though the titles differ, all persons working in the Ethics & Compliance programs in corporations share the common goal of promoting responsible conduct in the corporation. With the overarching goal being the same, the approach and strategies vary based on the chosen title: Ethics or Compliance. Under the Ethics approach, one strives to select individuals with good character, depends on the inherent goodness of employees, and employs ethics exhortations. With the Compliance approach, one depends on codified rules and adherence to these codified rules which usually originate from the law, and which are extended by the company policies. Both approaches have pros and cons, and the cons often outweigh the pros. The various stories of corporate misadventures reported in the newspapers, raise questions on the efficacy of these approaches. There is third approach based on "values", which can possibly be more effective in resonating with the employees of a corporation. By identifying the stakeholders (not limited to the financial stakeholders) who are impacted by the corporation, by recognizing the interests of the stakeholders, by committing to the values and duties of care towards stakeholders, "responsible conduct" of the corporation towards the stakeholders can be pursued effectively, and sustainably.

  • Ethics and military engineering operations

    Imagine the following three-variable Venn diagram: One circle represents the field of applied and professional ethics, a second circle represents military operations, and the third circle represents the practice of engineering, particularly construction projects. We can, without much difficulty, picture what the overlapping areas between any two circles refer to: engineering ethics, military ethics and military engineering. What I would like to address in this paper is the area common to all three circles: is there room for a unique field of ethics called “military engineering ethics”? I contend that there is, and in this presentation I propose to sketch out why and what that might look like.

  • Panel - Ethics and pervasive ICT

    In this panel, 6 of 13 contributors to a recent book on ethics and pervasive information and communication technologies, or PICT [1], will make short presentations on their areas of expertise. About half of the panel's time will be reserved for open discussion.

  • Ethics and the allocation of risk in engineering design

    Any engineering design allocates risk among its several constituencies: customers, users, manufacturers, the public at large, and so forth. Techniques for risk management are well known and widely practiced, but the role of virtue in guiding risk allocation is less clear. This essay contrasts two worldviews with contrasting concepts of virtue: that of the naturalist, which holds that the physical universe is all that exists, and that morality derives from human reason alone; and that of the theist, believing the physical universe to be created by divine fiat, and that human reason should be informed by principles set by a high, creator God. Defining a personal worldview is central to the ethics of risk allocation. Persuading students to do this becomes the central issue in teaching ethics in the engineering classroom.

  • Codes of ethics move into the “third generation”

    Corporations have come to rely on codes of ethics more frequently as a tool to ensure that their employees are engaged in ethical behavior in the course of their job duties. Over time, these tools have evolved from a focus on ethics as strictly legal compliance to a more sophisticated understanding of ethics which addresses the complex nature of interpersonal relationships. The author addresses how this shift in focus has impacted employees and proposes the adoption of a fiduciary standard in ethics codes for employees of international corporations.

  • Are science, technology, and engineering now the most important subjects for ethics? Our need to respond

    In this paper I argue that, yes, science, technology, and engineering are now the most important subjects for ethics to study. Due to the dramatic expansion of human power brought about by science, technology, and engineering, ethics needs to re-evaluate how humans should act given our new power. But it is not only ethics that needs to study science, technology and engineering - likewise, scientists, technologists, and engineers need to study ethics with great diligence, and embody ethical behavior in their lives, as befits many professional engineering societies' goals of holding paramount the “health, safety, and welfare” of the public.
