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

Vox Populi: What Americans Think About Foreign Policy, with Dina Smeltz & Mark Hannah

What do Americans think about the role the United States should be playing in the world? How do they conceive of the different trade-offs between domestic and international affairs, among competing options and sets of interests and values? The Chicago Council on Global Affairs' Dina Smeltz and Eurasia Group Foundation's Mark Hannah share the results of surveys from their organizations in this conversation with Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev.

China's Changing Role in the Pandemic-Driven World, with Amitai Etzioni & Nikolas Gvosdev

How has the pandemic changed U.S-China relations? How has it altered China's relationship with other nations and its geopolitical positioning? George Washington University's Amitai Etzioni and Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev discuss these questions and more as they break down "great power competition" in the era of COVID-19.

TIGRE: The Missing Link? Operationalizing the Democratic Community Narrative

Does the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as renewed concerns about overdependence on China, create an opening for the United States to move forward on decoupling from autocracies and reorienting both security and economic ties to allies who share similar values? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev shares his thoughts.
