Research-Based Teaching Ethics to Engineering Students: Beyond Compliance and on the Way of Digital Humanism
During more than twenty years, starting in 2001 at Mälardalen University, Gordana Dodig-Crnković has been teaching Engineering and Research Ethics to students of Computer Science, Engineering, Interaction Design, and related fields in courses “Professional ethics” at Mälardalen University (Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. levels), and “Research Ethics and Sustainable Development” at Chalmers University of Technology (Ph.D. level). During the years, Dodig-Crnković also had regular guest lectures on Professional Ethics, Ethics of Computing, Ethics of AI, Design Ethics, Ethics for Cognitive Scientists, Robotic Ethics, and Ethics of Autonomous Cars.
In all educational work in ethics, she is using current research and especially ethical aspects of emerging technologies. In this talk, Dodig-Crnković will present lessons learned, illustrated by concrete examples from the courses, sketching briefly possibilities, anticipations, hopes, and challenges for the future.
