Teaching GeoEthics Across the Geoscience Curriculum

Teaching GeoEthics Across the Geoscience Curriculum


The Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College (SERC)
10-13 June 2014
Chico Hot Springs, Pray, Montana (USA)

This workshop will explore the many dimensions of ethics education for the geosciences (GeoEthics). A major goal of this workshop is to begin to develop a community of scholars interested in developing a GeoEthics curriculum for use in geoscience courses at all levels. The workshop is designed to bring together innovators and early adopters to: 

a) survey, aggregate, organize and disseminate the instructional resources that are currently available, 
b) create a collection of case studies on GeoEthics that can be used in introductory courses, embedded into "core" courses for geoscience majors, or in dedicated courses on GeoEthics, and 
c) expand the network of colleagues who are interested in including a GeoEthics component in their own course work. 

The workshop is limited to 35 participants and we encourage those from the geoscience research and education communities, as well as the STEM ethics education community to apply.

Message for the US colleagues from the IAPG Vice President, 
Prof. Susan Kieffer.

Dear colleague
(with apologies to those who may have already registered for the workshop):
I am contacting you as a U.S. member of the IAPG to call attention to the workshop of the above title in Bozeman Montana this June.
We hope that you will consider coming, and are also requesting your help in publicizing the workshop amongst your colleagues. We are particularly interested in finding people from other disciplines (e.g., biology, ecology, engineering...) who might lend experience/perspectives.
Here is the WWW site for the workshop:

Thank you in advance for consideration!
Sue Kieffer

AI in the Arctic: Future Opportunities & Ethical Concerns, with Fritz Allhoff

How can artificial intelligence improve food security, medicine, and infrastructure in Arctic communities? What are some logistical, ethical, and governance challenges? Western Michigan's Professor Fritz Allhoff details the future of technology in this extreme environment, which is being made more accessible because of climate change. Plus he shares his thoughts on some open philosophical questions surrounding AI.

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.

Fighting ISIS Online, with Asha Castleberry-Hernandez

National security expert Asha Castleberry-Hernandez discusses what "ISIS 2.0" means and how the terrorist group has used social media to recruit and spread its message. How has its strategy changed since the death of its leader Abur Bakr al-Baghdadi? What can the U.S. military, Congress, and executive branch do better to fight the group online?
