Successful Engagement of Undergraduate Information Technology Management Students in a Compulsory Course in Ethical Issues in IT in a Large Class Environment
Grant, Candace T.
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n66 Aug 2010
The inclusion of ethics in business school programs including those focusing on business and Information Technology is seen as an increasingly important issue in curriculum design. This paper describes the planning, development and delivery of such a course in a large IT focused business school. It discusses both course content and teaching methods. The delivery experience clearly demonstrates that successfully engaging students, especially in a large class format, needs attention in both course development and delivery. Key to this engagement is relating the course material to their personal experiences; developing principles and frameworks that will be of value to them in their entry-level jobs; and providing opportunities for discussion and debate to develop their own critical thinking skills and expose them to the divergent perspectives of others.
