Where do you find ethics?
I’m looking right now at how we can begin building a “curriculum” for ethics and peace. Not exactly what you expect the CTO to be doing, but we have to start somewhere. To me the word curriculum means a course of study and does not connote solely that you’re attending some school or course – it is a very broad concept for me. People study things all the time, in their daily lives, and we want to make it easier for people of all ages to think about, and study, ethics and peace.
We’re not the first, by a long shot, to do this, so we start by seeking existing resources.
Preparing to put together a curriculum involves drafting a starting “statement” of what we’re doing. We’ll do a whitepaper on this, but here are some of the more operational issues I know we’ll want to keep in mind:
- We will build a clear statement of the scope of the curriculum.
- For each piece that’s within scope, we’ll identify existing resources for learning.
- We will specify modular components, each usable by itself or in combination with others.
- We will find many “modes” (books, courses, video, tapes, games, places you can go to learn, etc.)
We need someone to help us build the knowledgebase, which is our starting point – holding the online resources we’ve identified! If you’re interested, please take a look at our online postings of volunteer jobs now!
So here’s where we’re starting (only the top 10 references appear below, though the total number of available resources is higher) and we’re branching out from there. Want to help? Let us know.
