Ethics and Computer Scientists.
Pulliam, Sylvia Clark
The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions that computer science educators have about computer ethics. The study focused on four areas: (1) the extent to which computer science educators believe that ethically inappropriate practices are taking place (both on campus and throughout society); (2) perceptions of such educators about which practices in computer science have ethical connotations; (3) the extent to which such educators perceive that computer ethics are an appropriate topic to be addressed in computer science classes and which topics with ethical implications should be taught in the classroom; and (4) what teaching methods should be used if computer ethics is taught at the college level. Respondents included 87 (out of 144 surveyed) full-time faculty members who teach computer science classes at colleges and universities in the state of Kentucky. Seven tables reflect survey responses. (AEF)
