How to Build a Better Engineer: An Analysis of Integrated CS Ethics Modules

How to Build a Better Engineer: An Analysis of Integrated CS Ethics Modules
Research paper
Description: 

Starting in 2019, Point Loma Nazarene University professors Dr. Lori Carter and Dr. Catherine Crockett recognized a need for integration of ethics into computer science (CS) and data science courses, so they have been developing a series of ethics modules to be embedded throughout CS curricula. This paper evaluates the effectiveness of the CS ethics modules by analyzing the current responses from teachers and students, similar approaches to teaching ethics in accounting, and current developments in moral psychology. It is concluded that the modules could benefit by maximizing class discussion time by using pre-class activities, clarifying how the modules should taught, reframing the ethical frameworks in the introductory modules, and creating an additional open-ended module for students in internships.
