Information technology and ethics
Information technology revolutionised the way in which we conduct many aspects of our lives. The aim of the course is to provide the participant with an understanding of the ethical questions raised by ICT. The course will cover ethical issues which information technology professionals should be especially aware of.
Important issues such as privacy, the digital divide, free speech and ownership of the immaterial have new meanings in the information age. Possibilities provided by information technology also create new questions on what is ethical behaviour and what is not.
The student will understand what is ethical behaviour and what is not, and how does that relate to computer professionals, their duties and rights. The student will also have a deeper understanding of a field of their interest in the topic area.
