An Active Learning Activity for an IT Ethics Course
Woods, David M.; Howard, Elizabeth V.
Information Systems Education Journal, v12 n1 p73-77 Jan 2014
Courses in Information Technology Ethics are often designed as discussion-intensive courses where case studies are introduced and evaluated using ethical theories. Although many of the case studies directly apply to our students' online lives, the stories can sometimes seem too far removed from their own experiences. While we read the news headlines about data being intercepted via networks, students may not fully understand how easy that data is to intercept. Incorporating a hands-on experience using a network sniffing program allows students to actually experience just how easily someone can intercept their data.
