Abstract

This paper looks into the possible use of reflective journal writing assessments for teaching ethics for information age course to students from business and computing backgrounds in order to increase deeper learning and enhance subject performance. Although reflective journal writing has not been used previously as a learning tool to teach ethics, this paper compares the results from a sample population of more than 300 students across four semesters to a comparison group from previous semesters taught by the same instructor. Results highlight significant impact of using reflective journal writing on students' understanding of ethics concepts through recorded increase in grades and reduction in fail rates.
