MIT OWC: Ethics in Research

(Yep! Still posting!)

Have you heard of MIT OpenCourseWare? Here is a description of the OCW from their website: "MIT OCW is a large-scale, Web-based publication of the educational materials from the MIT faculty's courses…MIT OCW provides users with open access to the syllabi, lecture notes, course calendars, problem sets and solutions, exams, reading lists, even a selection of video lectures, from 1250 MIT courses representing 34 academic disciplines and all five of MIT's schools. The initiative will include materials from 1800 courses by the year 2007"(Link) (emphasis mine).

Anyway, I think this is a really very cool project. I get an email update and they've added an interesting ethics class:

Biomedical Engineering Seminar Series: Topics in Medical Ethics and Responsible Conduct in Research. See the details here.
