Product designs and uses have always had liability and ethical considerations. However, these liability and ethical considerations are becoming more important and nuanced as the world becomes a smaller place and the need for differentiation becomes more important. These changes have positively affected choices, but at the same time have increased liability and ethical considerations. Combined together, it is becoming increasingly important for designer and users to understand how products are used, where they are used, and by whom they are used. The consequences of having an incomplete picture can not only impact designers and users, but can also affect the safety and well-being of all stakeholders, especially the public.

Students will have the ability to directly interact with and ask questions of the presenter.
Participants will be able to define values, norms, morals, and ethics using existing definitions in order to evaluate liability and ethical considerations relating to product development and product use.
Participants will be able to identify primary, secondary, and tertiary stakeholders to evaluate how a product is intended to be used, how it actually may be used, who might be impacted by the product, and resulting design consideration (including marketing, sales, instructions, and labels).
Participants will be able to identify cultural difference that affect how product liability and ethics are interpreted, and determine which products are suitable for specific cultures based on risk assessment.
Participants will be able to assess consequences for those stakeholders who might not come into direct contact with a product from a liability and ethical perspective in order to evaluate product risks and viability.
