I somehow missed this when it was first published, but I appreciate what is being said here.

I regularly teach 3 sections of Engineering Ethics populated almost exclusively by engineering/computer science students and have also found that most of what is said here has made the class better.

For instance, I use Team-Based Learning where most of most classes involves students working through a case (or sometimes an argument about professional duties), together, using the concepts they have learned. No old philosophers needed, just some background in the concepts/framework and then set them to (structured) work where, inevitably, they have to make a recommendation and be able to support it.
