Diversity and NSF Grantees Poster Session
Early in 2016 the Online Ethics Center for Engineering and Science (OEC) website released a significant set of enhancements to its site. These enhancements make it easier to find and use resources for teaching ethics in engineering and science and to recognize those who are authoring and contributing resources. Enhanced search capabilities allow users to refine their search by topic area, discipline, and resource type. Individual resources connect to their related resources using a three-tab system (supporting resources, subject aids, and teaching aids) and a box on the right side that highlights other related resources. While browsing and searching, OEC users can also connect to the more expansive collection of published literature, educational resources, and codes of ethics at the Ethics Education Library (EEL). A new classification system for resources organizes the OEC for easy browsing and future expansion. The site is expanding its collection on issues of diversity, globalization, social responsibility, and social justice. In the next three years, the OEC will also implement and strengthen new social features supporting the resource collection and the community of people using and contributing to the site. A diverse, interdisciplinary project advisory group, an outreach group, and editorial boards guide these efforts. The poster details the new site features and identifies opportunities for ASEE members, and engineering faculty, students, and practitioners to contribute and use the OEC.
