Engineering ethics good practice exchange: Working Party on Education (WPE) questionnaire
The rapidly evolving chemical engineering (CE) practice led to a number of professional competencies gaining more prominence in various accreditation requirements. Engineering ethics is particularly challenging for the education community to effectively implement in the existing curricula. EFCE Working Party on Education wishes to support the educators by creating a ‘good practice for sharing' resource. Thus, we would like to find out what approaches are used in your institution to support important ethical considerations in the curriculum.
All your responses will be treated in confidence, and we will share all the outcomes through the WPE website. We are also happy to discuss these topics with you individually, if you wish to provide your contact details.
This short questionnaire should take no more than 10-15 min of your time.
You can share your good practice examples of teaching professional ethics using the following form. These will be shared with the community similarly to the teaching methodologies resources.
