While technologies provide significant benefits in healthcare, society, and research, they also raise ethical concerns for individuals, communities, and the environment. Those involved in the creation, use, and oversight of technologies can help ensure that they are developed and used in beneficial and just ways by anticipating and addressing the related ethical issues.
Through this dynamic course, learners will explore a range of technologies that have received significant global attention, with a focus on the ethical issues and governance approaches affecting those technologies. Each module will succinctly help learners understand the basics of various technologies, including their benefits and uses, as well as current ethical issues and global governance responses.
Given the pace at which technologies evolve, this course will be continuously updated with new modules that cover other emerging technologies and/or expand on the existing topics. If you have an idea for a new topic, please share it via our “Submit Your Content Ideas” tool.
