X284: Intro to Effective Altruism in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 20, 2019)
When we donate to a favorite charity, how do we know how much we're helping others? You have about 80,000 hours in your career. How can you use them to make the world a better place? Should we prefer to help people close to us or people across the globe? If you're interested in the answers to these questions, you should check out effective altruism! Effective altruism is about using reason and evidence to do the most good possible. This course will ask students to think critically about how they can use their careers, time, and money to improve the world.
