Article: Embedded EthiCS: Integrating Ethics Across CS Education

The cover story of the August Communications of the ACM covers digital ethics pedagogy.

“This article presents an alternative and more integrative approach to incorporating ethical reasoning into computer science education, which we have dubbed ‘Embedded EthiCS.’ In contrast to stand-alone computer ethics or computer-and-society courses, Embedded EthiCS employs a distributed pedagogy that makes ethical reasoning an integral component of courses throughout the standard computer science curriculum.” View the whole piece here.
