Thus, this module covers key issues of technology development and sustainability. We will discuss key theoretical perspectives on technology in society and apply these perspectives to the field of biotechnology. Students will develop a paper on ‘technology in society’, applying theoretical perspectives to a concrete case. We will discuss topics in class and students will benefit from providing and receiving constructive feedback.
