Building Ethics Modules is a two-day workshop designed to help Ohio University instructors include ethics components in their classes. The workshop will focus on the development and implementation of ethics modules tailored to the field and subject matter covered in individual courses.

Participants will work individually, with other faculty, and with members of the institute to develop ethics modules. Each participant will receive $300 stipend upon completion of the workshop.

About 120 Ohio University faculty members have participated in the institute’s Building Ethics Modules workshops since the first workshop, in 1990. Participants have come from a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from industrial engineering to dance. Some have incorporated ethics into existing classes, while others have created new courses focusing on ethics.

Enrollment in the 2003 workshop is limited to 20 (first come / first serve). Register by filling out the on-line registration form (recommended), or send a one-page proposal to the Institute for Applied and Professional Ethics, 202 Ellis Hall. Hard-copy proposals should name the course into which the ethics module will be added; describe some ideas you have at the moment about how you might do it; and outline of the problems you foresee and hope to overcome by adding the new material.

Applications must arrive by Friday, November 7, 2003. The Institute will notify applicants by November 14.
