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

About 90 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 focussing on ethics.
