Call for Papers
Theme: Ethics in STEM, Technology, Design and Engineering
Keynote: Henry Petroski
We welcome abstracts and papers addressing any aspect of teaching ethics across the curriculum, but have a special interest for this year's conference on how to integrate ethical considerations into STEM courses and other courses that may seem to its practitioners to be wholly quantitative. A standard move is to add a special course in ethics (e.g., Ethics in Engineering) to the curriculum or add a week or so into an already crowded syllabus, but we are interested in how ethics can be integrated into the normal subject matter of such courses -- whether, and how, ethics can be taught while teaching the usual syllabus.
Submissions may include full papers or abstracts (no more than 250 words). Session formats will include papers, panels, case study analysis and discussion, and pedagogical demonstrations.
The Society publishes Teaching Ethics, and papers for conferences may be sent to the editors for their consideration for publication.
