CST 373: ETHICS AND CURRENT ISSUES in Communication Science and Technology

CST 373: ETHICS AND CURRENT ISSUES in Communication Science and Technology THICS AND CURRENT ISSUES in Communication Science and Technology Spring 2016 Assignment 05: The Limits of Privacy Post 9/11 worth 15% of semester grade Purpose: Working in teams of 2 or 3 (at least one CD and one CSIT student in each group) research and write a short paper (minimum 10/maximum 20 pages double-spaced not including title and bibiography pages) using Amitai Etzioni’s The Limits of Privacy (especially Chapters 3-6 referencing specific issues) text and Bill Tancer’s Click as a starting point. You are strongly encouraged to also use Etzioni’s How Patriotic is the Patriot Act? (see Syllabus). The paper should explore and define your personal concepts of privacy (summarizing the themes from Paper 01) and then compare and contrast these values to others within your culture (focusing on generational/political/regional differences) as well as with at least three other cultures outides the United States. NOTE: The connections between the very serious Etzioni and the more light Tancer texts are not obvious but are critical for you to bring some insight to the paper. The paper should include a minimum of fifteen additional annotated references/citations that support your arguments/reactions to Etzioni’s ideas and conclusions. Note: Librarian Ryne Leuzinger will be giving a presentation on research methods before we begin this assignment. He has also developed an excellent course guide at: http://alacarte.csumb.edu/course-guide/9-CST361-373?tab=195 One paper, submitted twice PDF file DRAFTposted to iLearn nine days before final paper is due PDF posted to personal course website and iLearn DRAFT Due date: Posted by 9pm, Sunday, 6 March Due date: Posted by Noon, Friday, 18 March Assessment Criteria: Synthesizes the authors’ concepts and ideas Contributes relevant and insightful research Contributes multiple perspectives Identifies values at stake Reaches an insightful conclusion Communicates clearly and efficiently Please review the standards for assessing your research paper on the next page. You should use the rubric as a checklist for completing the assignment and achieving a passing score. If you wish to get an A in the course you will need to consistently score an E (Excellent) in this and every assignment. NOTE that this is both a research paper and a personal reflection. Although the Etzion and Tancer texts are the primary resources, they should not outweigh the other reference sources. It should be obvious how all of the research is used and why. And it should be clear how you have personally synthesized the research to evolve your definitions, attitudes and opinions on the issues raised by Etzioni and Tancer. •• •••••• Self-Assessment E: Excellent S: Satisfactory NI: Needs Improvement Synthesizes authors’ concepts and ideas E: Provides an interesting and intelligent synthesis of Etzioni’s and Tancer’s ideas with personal experiences and related research. The synthesis is insightful, allowing the reader to make connections between different sources that are not necessarily obvious. S: Provides an adequate synthesis of Etzioni’s and Tancer’s ideas with personal experiences and related research. The synthesis is sometimes insightful, allowing the reader to make minimal connections between different sources that are not necessarily obvious. NI: Provides little if any synthesis of Etzioni’s and Tancer’s ideas with personal experiences and related research. The connections between research and personal reflection are not clear or too obvious. Contributes relevant and insightful research E: Provides meaningful and relevant information and resources (quotes, statistics, links, etc.) that help expand the student’s concepts and conclusions. Makes explicit and insightful connections between issues, perspectives, and related events. S: Simply presents the artifact and required additional resources without providing consistent and insightful connections. NI: Lacks clarity and contains few explicit connections between issues, perspectives, and related events. Contributes multiple perspectives E: Provides peers additional viewpoints and opinions to consider beyond those of the student and artifact’s author. Focuses on generational/ political/regional differences and draws insightful contrasts with at least three other cultures outides the United States. S: Includes mandatory minimum of ten additional references but does not consistently make insightful connections. Includes generational/ political/regional differences and draws relevant contrasts with at least three other cultures outides the United States. Considers how the social frameworks (environment, health, education, governance, social interaction, and commerce) are affected by these issues of privacy. NI: Views issues and dilemmas in simple terms and usually does sowith a limited focusand a singularperspective. Doesnot considerhow the socialframeworks(environment,health, education,governance, socialinteraction, andcommerce) areaffected by theseissues of privacy.Identifiesvalues at stakeE: Examines valuesinherent in ethicaldilemmas from theperspective of thosewho are affected anddeliberates with deeplevels of compassionand empathy toaddress the dilemmaswith recognition ofthe consequences ofone’s own action orbehavior on others.S: Examinesdilemmas from theperspective of thoseaffected but withminimal attention tothe values inherentin the dilemmas anddeliberates withminimal levels ofempathy.NI: Ignores dilemmasfrom the perspectiveof those affected withminimal attention tothe values inherentin the dilemmas anddeliberates withminimal levels ofempathy.Communicatesclearly andefficientlyE: Makesconnectionsbetween issues,perspectives, andresponses. Avoidsredundancy.Uses appropriatelanguage and iswell written. Thereis a good balancebetween thepersonal and theacademic research.S: Uses appropriatelanguage andis well written.The style is bothpersonal andprofessional.NI: Usesinappropriatelanguage and ispoorly written.ConsidersaccountabilityE: Recognizes theconsequences ofan individual orgroup’s action orbehavior on othersand providessuggestions andsolutions for futureaction.
