AbstractEAC (ethics across the curriculum) has reached the stage where it can benefit from a supportive, online environment. The EAC Toolkit has been designed to provide just such an environment that will serve, not only as a repository for existing EAC resources, but also help to draw together the expertise and experience in moral pedagogy that is distributed throughout the EAC community. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the EAC Toolkit provides an interactive online forum where collaborators meet to develop instructional materials that integrate ethics into the occupational and professional curriculum. This essay will characterize EAC as a vital pedagogical approach to teaching ethics to professional and occupational students, present the Toolkit as an online environment that supports EAC efforts, describe how Connexions® authoring and dissemination tools support the values and activities of the Toolkit, and how the Toolkit complements and extends EAC faculty development workshops.
