Ethics shape our sense of right and wrong, and inform our everyday professional actions. With the increasing use of technology in personal and professional settings, new and complex ethical issues arise. This workshop will explore ethical standards from a variety of disciplines related to the use of technology and social media in professional practice. Overarching trends and themes associated with technology-related ethical standards will be considered. Participants will have an opportunity to analyze ethical scenarios and apply existing technology-related standards to identify and resolve ethical challenges. Implications for ethical practice in the digital age will be identified and reviewed.
