Ben-Jacob, Marion G.
Educational Technology & Society, v8 n4 p198-204 2005
There is an increased use of computers in the educational environment of today that compels educators and learners to be informed about computer ethics and the related social and legal issues. This paper addresses different approaches for integrating computer ethics across the curriculum. Included are ideas for online and on-site workshops, the design of a faculty seminar day and an academic course. The paper contains a template for designing modules that are relevant for individual disciplines as well as those that are discipline-independent. One module is presented in detail. Survey results are presented for a two year project on integrating computer ethics across the curriculum. The study of computer ethics is critical as technology is being integrated into every aspect of our lives.
