Paper C: Topic Selection (Individual) and Research of an existing or emerging technology and its related ethical issues.

For the first part of this assignment, select a topic for individual research. Select a digital ethical issue for your research that is caused by the existing or emerging technology. Following is a link to some suggested topical ideas you may want to consider as a candidate for this assignment. Be sure to keep in mind that the technology aspects of this assignment are different from those of Paper A (Application of decision making frameworks to IT-related ethical issues) or Paper B, which dealt with aspects of ethical issues and a subsequent organizational policy.

  • Topic Title – Begin with a topic title that describes what you will research.
  • Explain the reason for your topic selection briefly in a paragraph of at least 150 words. In addition, please determine three critically important questions you would like to address regarding your topic, in your individual research paper. Include a written description (100 words) for each question that includes why that question is critically important.
  • The objective in developing and posing these questions is to stage your research and guide your preparation of the final Research Paper, so that one or more ethical principles are applied and explained as a result of your research. This process helps you establish a thesis for your research.
  • Lastly, provide at least three proposed reference sources, at least two of which must be from the UMGC library database (or an equivalent academic database), which you plan to use to address (i.e., research) the three questions. These proposed reference sources must have external links. (Note:  you are likely to find additional and even better references/sources as you continue your research for this Assignment.)
