  • The first of two brief videos based on interviews with leaders in climate adaptation, city management, engineering systems, public engagement, and other key fields, who gathered at the national meeting on “Climate Change and America’s Infrastructure: Engineering, Social, and Policy Challenges,” January 28-30, 2013.
  • This video highlights participant views about the wide range of expertise and public involvement that will be needed to respond adequately to the stresses on engineering systems from climate change. It is designed to enable educators and others to engage with engineers and the public about the numerous challenges, and to stimulate discussion about how to respond.

  • Upcoming Webinar from ASEE: "Developing Ethics Skills in the Classroom"

    PostedWednesday, March 7, 2018 AT 2:04 PM

    The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) will host the webinar "Developing Ethics Skills in the Classroom" on Wednesday, April 11, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Eastern Time.

    Webinar Description:
    Knowing what is right (moral development) and doing the right thing on a particular occasion (moral behavior) do not always align. Contextual factors can greatly influence how engineers choose to apply their ethical standards. Engineering education should help future engineering professionals identify and navigate complex ethical situations in the workplace and beyond. In this webinar, Daniel D. Burkey and Michael F. Young (University of Connecticut) will describe a Cards Against Humanity-like card game that faculty can employ in the classroom to encourage students’ awareness of contextual ethics decisions and create a large classroom context for discussing complex issues of engineering ethical dilemmas.

    This webinar is free but registration is required...
