We are excited to announce that Donal Heidenblad, Mary Kendig, Katie Shilton & Susan Winter recently had a workshop accepted to the Engaged Scholarship for Ethics and Responsible Innovation in STEM Fields Workshop at James B. Hunt, Jr. Library, NC State University, Raleigh, NC.
Their workshop is titled: The Privacy by Design Simulation: Ethics Education through Experiential Learning. The project team discovered that teaching the engineers who curate sensitive and personal data to make wise ethical decisions is a critical challenge for ethics education. Their poster presents the Privacy by Design Simulation: a role-playing game designed to teach information ethics through experiential learning. Donal believes that information ethics education can be improved by engaging students in real-world activities that mimic how software developers actually encounter and debate ethics in professional settings. This project tests their approach through deployment and evaluation of an ethics education role-playing game.
The 1.5 day workshop from March 14-15, 2018 will include a keynote presentation, poster presentations, interactive panels on engaged learning and scholarship, and breakout discussion sessions. Dr. Susan Winter will be conducting the workshop for the team! Register for the workshop online here: https://research.ncsu.edu/ges/events/cce-workshop-2018/
