The Center the for the Study of Ethics in the Professions is working with the Interprofessional Projects Office of Illinois Tech to help develop ways of integrating ethics instruction into the IPRO program. Below is a collection of resources for students and faculty advisors interested in exploring the unique ethical questions raised by their projects.
This is a collection of exercises designed so faculty advisors can easily insert ethics instruction into their existing project syllabi. We welcome feedback on how these exercises can be improved from faculty and students.
