AbstractOver the last two decades colleges and universities in the United States have significantly increased the formal ethics instruction included in science and engineering programs. Today, such programs socialize students in the values of scientists and engineers as well as their obligations in the conduct of scientific research and in the practice of engineering. This report presents the edited papers and a summary of a workshop on best practices for ethics education programs in science and engineering, with presentations in four key areas: goals and objectives for ethics instruction, instructional assessment, institutional and research cultures, and development of guidance checklists for instructors and administrators.
