Evaluating and Assessing Tech Ethics Education
PIT educators lack tools to evaluate their pedagogy. Our work at a public polytechnic university (NJIT) and two PIT-UN institutions (Harvard & Stanford) will yield first-of-their-kind evaluation tools that can be deployed across diverse institutions for tech ethics pedagogical improvement.
Public Interest Technologists will only be recruited into critical institutions if leaders understand why they are important. This challenge is our focus: to develop curriculum for current and future public servants that embeds the processes, service models & technologies of the internet era.

Strengthening the Public Interest Tech University Network
A national network of 50 educators and researchers conduct scientific explorations, develop courses and provide internships that investigate adverse consequences of technologies to impact real-world practice, build academic knowledge about technology-society clashes, and teach others to do the same.
