dc.description.abstract An increased emphasis is being placed on ethics in information systems. An investigation of: the relevant literature which highlighted the growth of, and importance in understanding the moral philosophies which underlie computer ethics; and the official curricula recommendations that have increasingly and consistently recommended inclusion of courses describing the social, professional and ethical responsibilities of information systems professionals; and informed by the observations from two empirical studies that showed the extent of unethical behaviour, and how this behaviour is diminished in those who have received formal tertiary level education resulted in a proposed new course module on ethics in information systems. The module follows a sandwich-approach whereby two stand-alone modules are conducted on either side of integrated computer ethics content within the rest of the curriculum. en
