AbstractThis paper discusses the various techniques that can be used to develop course material and classroom presentations for use in construction engineering courses, and also describes a framework that can be presented to students to assist them in making ethical decisions. The approach described uses real world construction ethics cases and invited guest lectures from the construction industry.
