Online course on ethics

From: Eric Pourchot <epourchot>
Date: Tuesday, June 26, 2007
AIC is pleased to announce a new online course starting August 2,
2007 to help conservators with the ethical decisions and priorities
encountered in the field of conservation.  "Professional
Responsibility for Conservation" provides readings, case studies,
and discussions to get you thinking and planning. This online
seminar will be a forum to consider and discuss a broad range of
ethical issues, including questions regularly confronted in all
conservation practices as well as more specialized ones.

Online discussion forums allow you to draw on the combined
experience of other participants, the course facilitator, and select
outside experts. Best of all, "Professional Responsibility" comes to
you.  All you need is a computer with Internet access and you are
ready to learn.

The four-week course begins on Thursday, August 2, 2007 and
continues, with new activities and discussions each week, through
August 29, 2007.  The course site will remain available for
reference and downloads through September 25, 2007.  The instructor,
Sarah Lowengard, will guide discussions and offer tips and resources
beyond what you find on the course site.  You may work on the course
at any time within each week.

Expect to spend at least six hours per week on the course--roughly
the equivalent of attending a full-day workshop each week. You
choose when, according to your own schedule--at noon during your
lunch break, in the evening with a cup of coffee by your side, or at
six in the morning in your favorite jammies.

The fee for this course is normally $200 for AIC members, $300 for
non-members.  We are offering AIC members a special $50 registration
fee for this summer presentation; non-members can register for $200.

The registration deadline is July 31, 2007.  Participants will be
accepted in order of receipt of paid registration.  Enrollment is
limited, so early registration is advised.
