EXPOSING ENGINEERING STUDENTS TO ETHICAL CHALLENGES: A WEB-BASED LEARNING MODULE

Leonnie Kavanagh, Kim Laberinto, Douglas Ruth

Abstract


This paper presents the development of an interactive web-based module on the ‘Code of Ethics’ for the practice of professional engineering in Manitoba.
The module highlights the importance of ethics, casestudies with ‘branching’ options for a variety of realworld scenarios of ethical or unethical choices, and tests with automatic feedback that track a students’ progress.
Once implemented, this module is expected to form the foundation for future e-modules in various engineering courses at the University of Manitoba.
