The research reported here is an attempt to give students some guidance in dealing with ethical issues in the workplace – especially those involving Information Technology. A recognition and understanding of the most prevalent categories of information technology ethics facilitates the raising of awareness of ethical issues in the minds of students. The categories provide insight to create examples of ethical dilemmas, as well as topics for discussion. This paper reports preliminary work on the development of a taxonomy, based on the the literature and building on the work of Mason (1986), to provide a basis for the use of appropriate ethical scenarios in the classroom. Adviser: Geoff Dick.
