Legal and Ethical Issues – Please read these directions carefully. I am being very specific. While you do have to share an article, I want this discussion to be relevant to the creation of your courses and that of your peers. Research articles are of no value if they don’t have a practical application.
There are many ethical and legal issues surrounding the use of technology in an educational setting. This week, you will discuss some of these issues and consider how they might impact the development of your online course. Find a recent article in a peer-reviewed nursing or educational journal that discusses potential legal and ethical issues relevant to the use of technology in nursing education (focus on education, not practice).
- In one paragraph, describe a few highlights of the article, focusing on the most relevant information for you and your classmates to consider as you create your online courses.
- Provide at least two ways that you will incorporate this information into your course design/content in a practical way. Be specific.
Response Posts: Legal and ethical issues are often perceived differently by students and faculty. In your peer responses, consider the implications of the legal and/or issues presented by your classmates from both the instructor and student perspectives. Share a related experience from your nursing education or practice. To meet the rubric requirements, you need a minimum of two peer responses. However, more back and forth interaction is required to achieve the maximum number of points on the rubric under Classroom Engagement.
