Event Details

Nell Kriesberg of North Carolina State University will give a seminar on the online classroom as part of the Science, Technology and Society brown bag seminars at NCSU. The question–Is it ethical to teach ethics online?–occurred to Kriesberg when she was first asked to design an online course. She has found that teaching ethics online does indeed work. She will share experiences over the last ten years designing and teaching online courses. Kriesberg has found many approaches that work well in the cyber classroom, both for the students and the instructor. In this seminar, she will share ideas about ways to design the course, how to design and run effective discussion forums and promote student involvement and critical thinking. The courses I will be using as illustration are STS 302 Science, Technology and Contemporary Values; IDS 201 Environmental Ethics; and IDS 303 Humans and the Environment.
