Forensic Science 6 covers the latest discoveries and technological advancements in forensic science, as well as potential future avenues of innovation. While some of the topics are set in advance, we will discuss developments that arise during the course of the class as well. In addition to a discussion of the technical details and potential benefits of each development, we will also discuss limitations or concerns with each development, which may include practical difficulties implementing...
This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their understanding of new developments in forensic science as well as their ability to critically evaluate the potential benefits, limitations, challenges, and ethical considerations associated with each of them.
I have been teaching Forensic Science for 16 years, and have designed courses for students from middle school through college in that time. Not only do I have a long history of forensic science education and teaching, but I also practiced law for over a decade and have expertise in constitutional law and legal philosophy, which factors into our discussions of the ethical and constitutional considerations of many new technologies.
There is no homework, other than critical thinking about the ways in which each advancement might impact investigations and individuals constitutional protections.
All materials are prepared and provided by me for this class.
I use an informal assessment of student participation, but I recognize that many families want or need a grade or more formal assessment, so students will have the option of writing multiple short essays about our topics so that I can provide that.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There is no age-inappropriate content or any graphic violence or sexual content in this class.
