The Dutch research project “Wijs met techniek” (Tech-Wise) explores ethics education for engineering students from a tool-based, practical perspective. In the project we have made an inventory of tools that are currently used on different levels of higher education. From the experiences so far, we have proposed to build a toolbased teaching track for ethics education in engineering curricula. In the workhop we present in this paper we built on this experiences with a short tool-based exercise, called ‘Wisdom on a Delft Blue tile’. Furthermore we present the backgrounds of the project, the set up of the workshop, and the results of the exercise with the participants. From the experiences with the workshop we reflect on the next steps of the research project.
