AbstractRecognizing that current competitive and complex research environments pose increasing ethical challenges for research scientists and engineers, the National Academy of Engineering convened a two-day workshop in 2008 where participants discussed needs and issues for ethics education; pedagogical methods and materials; and outreach and assessment. A number of ideas emerged from the workshop and, while they do not represent a consensus or formal recommendations from the Academy, they were generally agreed upon as the primary issues for bolstering ethics education and evaluation. The workshop report summarizes these recommendations that cover the areas: establishing institution-wide programs for ethics instruction and for rewarding ethically appropriate; describing best practices for developing ethics education programs and the development of criteria for evaluating training methods; and developing mentoring programs for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.
