Create a Word Document that lists the Name, Date, Author, URL of your sources and includes 1-4 sentences on the sources’ contents (see sample below).
Calluzzo, V.J. & Cante, C.J. (2004). Ethics in information technology and software use. Journal of Business Ethics, 51: 301. https://doi.org/10.1023/B:BUSI.0000032658.12032.4e
This research study argues that college students are uncertain about what constitutes appropriate and inappropriate behavior regarding college software and will take this uncertainty and behavior with them into the workplace upon graduation.

Final Speech Assignment:
Your final project in this course is a business presentation. You will select an ETHICAL ISSUE related to the Information Technology WORKPLACE and will give (and record) a 3-4 minute speech to a live audience of family and friends. Please keep in mind that you cannot just speak about ethics in the workplace… you need to focus on a particular ethical issue.
