Embedded Ethics Conference: Strategies for Teaching Responsible Computing Within the Computer Science Curriculum

What is Embedded Ethics?

Embedded Ethics is an initiative to embed an ethics-based curriculum into core undergraduate computing courses. By weaving discussions of ethics, policy, and professional responsibility throughout the computing curricula, the initiative addresses the responsibilities of designers and users of technology.


Conference Details:

The conference will offer broad discussions applicable to creating effective ethics education programs, covering the full life cycle of program creation, development, and implementation. Panelists from different universities will address how to get institutional buy-in to create a new ethics initiative and how to structure a successful program once you have, while instructors will present live teaching demonstrations and ethics curricula.

The conference is by invitation-only as seats are limited due to capacity. If you are interested in embedded ethics and would like to request an invitation to attend, please let us know.


Scholarship Application:

The conference is by invitation-only and free to attend. A limited number of funds will be awarded to equitably engage participants and to assist with travel expenses. If you are interested in attending and would like to apply to receive financial support, please fill out the application form.
