Computing and Information Technology
In an undergraduate computing ethics course, computing analogues can assist in illustrating and grounding some of the content of professional ethics for computer science itself. To introduce students to the standard normative theories, the instructor gives function headings; to show the different ways that these normative theories can be play out in reality, she describes their inheritance mechanism; to motivate gathering of pertinent facts, she invokes the notion of metadata. Care must be taken to emphasize that morals cannot be mechanized, but that such analogies can serve among the many factors that help in the understanding and solution of professional ethical dilemmas.
