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.

Principal Investigators

Danielle Allen, James Bryant Conant University Professor and Director, Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, and Jeff Behrends, Director of Ethics and Technology Initiatives

Educational Offerings

Teaching Public Service in the Digital Age

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.

Principal Investigator

David Eaves, Lecturer in Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School

Strengthening the Public Interest Tech University Network

Technology Science Research Collaboration 

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.
