K2's Ethics and Technology - On Demand (4 Hours)
With the explosion of technology in the workplace that has occurred over the past thirty years, a fair question to ask is “what are the ethical considerations and impacts related to this technology?” Practical technology issues such as data privacy and security no doubt carry ethical considerations, but technology also affects the ethics associated with issues such as work-life balance, the digital divide, training needs, copyrights, and fraud.
In this course, you will learn about “technoethics” and the implications this has on individuals and organizations.
