Webinar: Ethical (Dis)Continuities

Lessons for Teaching Data Ethics from Engineering and Computing Ethics Education
Thursday, October 14, 2021
12-1PM ET via zoom

What can data ethics education learn from the history of teaching engineering and computer ethics? Or, perhaps more importantly, what should it learn? In this talk, Anna Lauren Hoffmann discusses some major themes in research and writing on engineering and computer ethics education and connects them to emerging discussions of how we ought to teach ethics in the context of data science education. Drawing on her NSF-supported report Teaching Data Ethics: Foundations and Possibilities from Engineering and Computer Science Ethics Education (co-authored with Katherine Alejandra Cross), she sketches some continuities between these applied ethical domains and suggests some critical points where data ethics education can—and should—depart from its precursors.
