Scientists work in a dynamic environment involving personal and institutional negotiations with social and ethical issues. In this subject, students will engage with issues that are important yet challenging to future scientists. For example, they will use a range of professional communication skills to explain ethical concepts to current international case studies to a range of audiences. Students will also explore alternative views of science and scientific practices such as Indigenous Australian and other Native peoples approaches to knowledge. Finally, students will broaden their professional attributes by comparing their chosen scientific discipline's code of conduct to that of other fields of science.
