Congress on Teaching the Social and Ethical Implications of Research
There is an increasing push to offer scientists and engineers new forms of education in the social and ethical implications of research. Because this trend is relatively new, there are no cohesive curricula or recognized sets of best practices. But SEI education is happening in a wide variety of spaces including: laboratory training sessions, science museums, online modules, study abroad experiences, and the classroom. A number of research groups and individuals across the country are currently developing their own approaches to delivering this material to scientists and engineers. This Congress brought together a wide array of these educators to share the programs, materials, assessment methods, and experience they’ve already developed as well as serve as an opportunity to collaborate on new strategies to help scientists and engineers understand the social and ethical implications of research.
