The SEFI SIG Spring School 2021 will offer one and a half days of interactive workshops, papers and discussions on new ideas and practices in teaching and researching engineering ethics.

The audience for the Spring School is teachers and programme leaders who address or would like to address engineering ethics in their teaching, researchers who are working on understanding or advancing the field, and students who study or care about ethics in the engineering professions.

The School will include interactive sessions on a range of themes including

· Teaching professional ethics in student team projects
· Arts-based methods in engineering ethics education
· An open science approach to developing engineering ethics education
· The ethics of online education
· Teaching argumentation with engineers
· Understanding disengagement with ethics in engineering education
· Narrating engineering ethics with Aboriginal collaboration

Special sessions will focus on Transatlantic, Trans-Indian ocean, and European perspectives in engineering ethics research and practice.

A key organising thread of the Spring School will be to collaboratively edit and update the Wikipedia page on Engineering Ethics:

Registrations to the event are limited to 60 people. Those who register are asked to commit to attending most of the sessions in order to ensure a continuity and community-building across the event.

The full timetable will be available in early February.
