Jesuit Perspectives: Ethics
Generally, ethical issues involve a choice between value systems -- an individual's, an organization's, and/or society's. Ethical dilemmas arise when there is a conflict between those values and choices that need to be made that result in those conflicts.
This document provides a set of teaching resources, including questions, discussion points and instructor notes for incorporating Jesuit perspectives and values in the classroom. These resources are intended to be used as supplementary materials for Information Systems/Analytics courses. The resources are instructor-focused and meant for the instructor and not the students. This series from Inspirational Paradigm presents teaching resources focused in information systems and analytics with five categories including: Data for Good (DFG), Income Inequality (INI), Algorithm Biases (AB), Privacy (P), and Ethics (ETH). The document available on this page focuses on Ethics (ETH).
- Recognize the social justice issues related to IT and data analytics: digital divide, data and algorithm biases, and income inequality.
- Understand the technology ethical issues (loss of privacy, rumors & misinformation; data ownership and data access)
- Understand the role IT and IS play for societal good (ability to inform public about health, finance, services, crisis management, environmental sustainability, etc.)
