IT professionals' experience of ethical decision-making and its implications for IT education

Stoodley, Ian D. (2006) IT professionals' experience of ethical decision-making and its implications for IT education. In 3rd International Conference on Qualitative Research in IT & IT in Qualitative Research: Doctoral Consortium, November 27-29, 2006, Griffith University, Brisbane. (Unpublished)

Abstract

The rapidly changing information technology environment presents IT professionals with significant ethical decision-making challenges. This research will contribute to understanding how to best equip professionals to take ethical decisions in such a milieu. The research will supplement existing studies, which are predominantly quantitative, focussed on students and theory-based, by an investigation of practicing IT professionals' lived experience using the phenomenographic approach. Implications will be drawn for IT professional development.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
