REGISTRATION FOR THIS SESSION NOW CLOSED

 

The aim of the Professional Ethics in Design and Building seminar is to enhance practical understanding of relevant state law and, in particular, ethical principles relevant to architectural practice. The approach is interactive and user-friendly. We use case studies (a) to elicit ethical principles and (b) as occasions for practice in applying them. We explain how these ethical principles figure in what we call a “toolbox approach” to ethical decision-making and stress the need to approach ethical issues in a systematic, reflective and responsible way.

General Information

The day will be divided into four 90-minute sessions; 15-minute breaks will separate the two sessions in the morning and in the afternoon. One hour will be scheduled for lunch, which will be provided. Fifteen minutes will be set aside for wrap-up and formal evaluation.

Ethics and Communication

This year the seminar will include a focus on the relationship between communication and ethics, including opportunities (“the positive”) as well as challenges (“the negative”), which, sadly, tend to receive the lion’s share of attention in discussions of ethics and communication
