The Computing Ethics Narratives project is an interdisciplinary collaboration that integrates applied ethics into the undergraduate computing curriculum using narratives from a variety of sources, including films and television, literature, news, podcasts, blogs, and more. The ethical themes taxonomy is based on a schema from the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University and the technologies taxonomy is based on the Computing Classification System from the Association for Computer Machinery.
The CEN team shares the foundations of the pedagogical approach to teaching computing ethics through narratives. Using this framework, narratives serve as ‘ethical laboratories’ that help students consider their own responsibilities as future creators of technologies and as members of a global computing community.
