Weigh in on digital ethics with a quick ONA survey

By on November 9, 2011

The ethical issues surfacing from digital journalism can be complex and fast-changing. We’d like to do a little crowdsourcing via a quick, informal survey to determine the most relevant ones you confront in your work.

Your responses will be used as the basis for a discussion hosted by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics — an Executive Roundtable on Digital Media Ethics on Dec. 5 at Santa Clara University — with the goal of identifying and exploring ethical issues for digital journalists, and the best way to help deal with them.

Please take five minutes to answer the 12 questions as candidly as possible based on your personal experience in your current job. In return, we’ll keep you updated on any developments from the round-table.

The survey is here. Deadline is Nov. 14.

As always, thanks for your help in paving the way for digital journalism.
