Abstract:

This paper provides guidance on introducing societal and ethical dimensions of nanotechnology into the curriculum. Four methods are guest lectures from qualified professionals, use of case studies for experience recognizing and working through ethical issues, simulations of ethical and policy issues, and shared planning and teaching of a course. This paper illustrates how these methods can be combined using a course on societal dimensions of nanotechnology as an example.
