Discover a new course in ethical tech: An innovative course at the University of Notre Dame
Time & Location
About the Event
This webinar is part of the IFCU Talks series.
Profs. Don Howard and Mark Bourgeois initiated the project and will explain to us the wildly creative design of the course, which features throughout a narrative on a fictional university that prides itself on being a global leader in the deployment of cutting-edge technologies in a pedagogical setting. Each class session begins with an emphatic praise of the latest technological tool by the fictional university’s Chief Innovation Officer, and ends with a stern critical assessment by co-instructors Howard and Bourgeois of the ethical issues involved in the new technology. As future actors and decision-makers in the tech world, students enrolled in the course are not only made aware of the need to fully include the ethical dimension in tech R&D, but they also simply love it!
