A website site devoted to online ethics and a set of best practices for bloggers are the first major initiatives launched by Loyola University Chicago’s new Center for Digital Ethics and Policy. “Best Practices for Bloggers: Dimensions for Consideration,” housed at the center’s new website, www.digitalethics.org, is intended to serve as a guideline for ethics in the digital and new media world.
“Best Practices for Bloggers” presents a series of questions to consider as individuals construct, update or maintain their blog.
The Center for Digital Ethics and Policy, which resides in the University’s School of Communication, is the result of a $10,000 grant from Loyola’s Office of Research Services.
In addition to best practices for bloggers, the new interactive website will feature essays and book reviews written by Loyolans and guest faculty members from across the country discussing timely topics like Facebook privacy, ethical online behavior and more. [Loyola University Chicago]
