“Building Ethics Modules,” offered periodically by the Institute, is a two-day workshop designed to help Ohio University instructors include ethics components in their classes. The workshops focus on the development and implementation of ethics modules tailored to the field and subject matter covered in individual courses.
Participants work individually, with other faculty, and with members of the institute to develop ethics modules. Participants completing the workshop are eligible for implementation grants.
Almost 170 Ohio University faculty members have participated in the Institute’s Building Ethics Modules workshops their inception 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.
