APPE 2012 Symposium Panel: Energy Ethics in Science and Engineering Education (Slide Presentations)
This symposium reports on on-going research and educational activities in a collaborative project between the National Academy of Engineering Center for Engineering, Ethics, and Society and the Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes at Arizona State University. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the project takes a problem-oriented approach to ethics education, focused on the international issue of energy in the 21st century. Using a model that examines energy options in light of their technological and sociological plausibility as well as ethical desirability, it develops materials and approaches for examining energy ethics issues in graduate and post-doctoral education in energy fields. After testing them in graduate programs at ASU, the project will hold a National Institute on Energy, Ethics, and Society (NIEES) for fifteen graduate students from energy research programs around the nation and a public workshop at the NAE for energy science and policy audiences in 2013. These presentations report research findings about the ethical, educational, and institutional challenges that energy change scenarios pose, including case-focused empirical research by a graduate student participating in the project at ASU, and ethics modules developed in a complementary NSF IGERT Program on Sustainable Urban Infrastructure at the University of Colorado Denver.

Energy Ethics in Science and Engineering Education 1
An overview of the first year of the collaborative effort between the National Academy of Engineering and Arizona State University on Energy Ethics in Science and Engineering Education. These slides were presented at the APPE Annual Meeting by Dr. Rachelle Hollander on March 3, 2012.
Engineering Ethics in Science and Engineering Education 2
The second half of an overview of the first year of the collaborative effort between the National Academy of Engineering and Arizona State University on Energy Ethics in Science and Engineering Education. These slides were presented at the APPE Annual Meeting by Dr. Joseph Herkert on March 3, 2012.
Ethical and Social Implications of Smart Grid Technologies
This talk was presented by Dr. Timothy Kostyk at the APPE Annual Meeting on March 3, 2012. He explores issues of Smart Grid technology including 1) protecting the privacy of consumer usage information; 2) securing the grid from attacks by foreign nations, terrorists, and malevolent hackers; 3) ensuring social equity both in terms of access and cost of electric power service; and 4) maximizing utilization of energy efficiency and renewable energy resources.
Extreme Energy & Ethics: Type I and Type II Analyses
This talk was presented by Dr. Carl Mitcham at the APPE Annual Meeting on March 3, 2012. He describes two types of ethical analysis of energy. One that assumes that energy production and use is an unqualified good and one that includes critical philosophical reflection of the nature and meaning of energy and the consideration of social paths to the reduction of energy production and use.
Energy Ethics and Human Rights in Energy Education Contexts
This talk was presented by Dr. Anu Ramaswami at the APPE Annual Meeting on March 3, 2012. She describes approaches that she has taken in deliberating about ethical implications of research as well as the larger societal context which influences those efforts with students, in an interdisciplinary graduate program focused on sustainable urban infrastructure, developed as part of an NSF IGERT project
