Although materials for adopting the DC Lead Crisis as a case study abound (and we are happy to share the resources we use), there are benefits to working with cases close to your specific area of expertise, geographical location, and/or professional interests. Personal involvement in a case can demonstrate for students the challenging and rewarding journey of exploring and uncovering the multiple dimensions of a moral controversy in engineering/science. It can also facilitate rich, long-lasting, and mutually-beneficial relationships with diverse stakeholders. Finally, it can embody cognitive and emotional richness unique to each case and each instructor-stakeholder partnership. Such richness has been found to hold promise for case-based knowledge acquisition and students’ transfer of this knowledge to real-world moral decisionmaking.
