2011-2012 & 2012-2013 Ethics Projects

Integrated an IS/IT ethics understanding and awareness in the INFS 3000 course starting in Fall 2011. Designed the Ethical Efficacy Survey that included a pre- and post-ethics awareness survey that was implemented at the beginning of the semester and at the end of the semester to measure changes in attitudes and understanding of ethics issues in information systems and information technologies.

Developed a case on ethics and web security. This case can be used for ethics and privacy discussion and web security discussions. Specific ethics cases developed by Dr. Beranek include: family websites, prescription drug industry, hacker groups, and Amazon marketing research programs. This work provides IT and privacy ethics resources for classrooms at community colleges and UCCS audiences.
