Improving Skill Development: An Exploratory Study Comparing a Philosophical and an Applied Ethical Analysis Technique
Al-Saggaf, Yeslam; Burmeister, Oliver K.
Computer Science Education, v22 n3 p237-255 2012
This exploratory study compares and contrasts two types of critical thinking techniques; one is a philosophical and the other an applied ethical analysis technique. The two techniques analyse an ethically challenging situation involving ICT that a recent media article raised to demonstrate their ability to develop the ethical analysis skills of ICT students and professionals. In particular the skill development focused on includes: being able to recognise ethical challenges and formulate coherent responses; distancing oneself from subjective judgements; developing ethical literacy; identifying stakeholders; and communicating ethical decisions made, to name a few. (Contains 4 notes, 1 table, and 1 figure.)
