金沢工業大学の技術者倫理教育への全学的な取り組み Approach of Kanazawa Institute of Technology for the achievement of Ethics Across the Curriculum
Owing to the increasing attention to the engineering ethics matter, its education has become the core of the engineering education. Many people agree that it should be given not just as a course but across the entire curriculum. However, the engineering instructors would find it difficult to integrate the ethics education into their courses because they have had no training in this area for themselves. To solve this problem, Dr. Michael Davis proposed "Micro-Insertion" technique by which instructors can introduce a small unit of ethics education into their courses. As a part of the curriculum revision in 2004, Kanazawa Institute of Technology implemented the engineering ethics education in several engineering courses adopting the "Micro-Insertion" technique along with establishing a new required engineering ethics course. This paper describes our unique approach to the Ethics Across the Curriculum (EAC) .
