537_1&2_Private IT Ethics Journal

You are required to keep a private reflections journal. Every two weeks you should add approximately one page to your journal on what you’ve observed, learned, or experienced during that two-week period (you are certainly free to write more, though!). There will be suggestions on what to write on in the bi-weekly assignments, but you are free to write about whatever strikes you. This journal is private and will only be viewed by you and the professor.

Feel free to have a little fun with your journal. It’s okay to be creative, experiment, and try new things here with your writing style and content. You can try freestyle writing if you like, where you let your thoughts run without worrying about style, grammar and spelling. We hope you see that keeping a journal is a good way to collect your thoughts on different topics. Journaling is a great way to improve your writing skills. Please do write in this regularly – we want you to reflect as the class is going on, not wait until the end. The entire journal counts toward your overall grade. You are evaluated on quality and quantity of journal entries.

Something to consider for your Weeks 1 and 2 journal: the Wikipedia entry for Lawrence Kohlberg’s stages of moral development features a case called the Heinz Dilemma. If you were Heinz what would you have done? Why? Which of Kohlberg’s stages resonates most with you?
