I’m coming to the blog as part of the participation requirement for my class. What do I do?

To find topics related to your coursework, click on the category in the sidebar on the right that most closely relates to the subject matter you are studying.

For example, if you are taking “Science, Ethics and Society” with Professor Nanda, search in “Course: Science, Ethics and Society” for posts featuring the articles assigned from “Making Sense.”  If you are taking “Social and Ethical Dimensions of Biotechnology” with Professor Miller and Professor McLean, search in the “Course: Social and Ethical Issues in Biotech” Category to see posts related to your subject matter.

How do I print out my blog comment for participation credit?

Because the articles are long and have many comments on them, here are some ways to print out your comment response for credit without wasting paper:

-Open the printing settings on your computer and select to print only the page on which your comment appears.

-Alternatively, you can take a screen shot of your comment and print it out from your desktop (on a Mac, select command, shift 4 to drag the box around your text.)

I’m interested in technology and ethics.  How can I get involved in the blog?
