What you'll learn in this it class:

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? This evening workshop will introduce you to the basics of ethical thinking and will help you implement ethics in your working day.

***This is a standalone module in the Ethics by Design Series, which encourages you to think more deeply about the products we design and how they are changing our lives and what it means to be human. Check out the upcoming dates for the rest of the classes in the series:
