On behalf of the American Anthropological Association, the Committee on Ethics (COE) is pleased to announce the Small Grant Award for Developing Ethics Curricular Materials has been made to Elisa J.

The curriculum project will produce a series of self-paced, voice-over video slide shows in HTML5 with a Creative Commons copyright, making the learning modules free to the public. The modules will be hosted on the web, including Bioethics 2.0™ and Project Phobos™ websites. An instructor’s guide will provide additional guidance for incorporating the modules into existing curricula, with a bibliography of additional resources. The investigators have prior experience in bioethics education and developed a broad dissemination plan through professional association meetings and multiple internet venues.

Drs. Gordon and Perlman will report on their work in the “Ethical Currents” column of the Anthropology News in the coming year.

The COE applauds this collaborative application for its attention to practical issues of research ethics, the conduct of anthropological research and mechanisms of regulatory oversight.

The COE is a standing committee of the AAA charged with advancing the theory and application of ethics to anthropological research and practice across the discipline.
