When you design or engineer a product, you believe that it will have a positive impact on your target market. But do you have the resources to think about how your technologies might affect society as a whole?

Key takeaways:

  • Introduction to ethics and morality with a focus on human rights

Seminar

We learn by doing. A seminar gives you the time and space to reflect on the concepts we learned in the workshop, and to come back to a community to discuss and refine your ideas.

A seminar includes:

  • A structured worksheet for independent study, which should take 3-5 hours

  • Constructive and positive feedback

  • 1 hour seminar with a small group of like minded individuals to discuss key topics

"The seminar was full of vibrant conversation and flew by!"
