CSEC 105B - Introduction to Technical Ethics

Credits: 3
This course deals with ethical issues associated with the design, use, and propagation of technology. At virtually all stages of development and use, any technology can carry with it ethical dilemmas for both creators and users. Of interest is how such dilemmas are resolved (or complicated) according to how effectively they are communicated to stakeholders. Write reports, instructions, summaries, and e-mails; develop audience awareness skills; develop skills in document layout and design, and collaborate in a group project.

Student Learning Outcomes
