Teaching

At Texas A&M University I teach a large course in engineering ethics. The current enrollment is about 700 - 1200 students per semester. The course is team-taught together with about 8 co-instructors and about 20 teaching assistants. In 2013, when working at Eindhoven University of Technology, I developed and coordinated a new course on the ethics and history of technology (together with prof. Johan Schot), which was taken by 1285 freshman students and taught by a team of about 15 instructors. From 2006 to 2008 I was Director of Studies in philosophy at St Edmund's College, Cambridge. I was responsible for organizing supervisions for their philosophy students, and took part in the admissions procedure. I also did supervisions with students in several other colleges in Cambridge. My most important pedagogical achievements are my textbooks:
