Jane C. Maina [2]


Abstract: Concerns have been raised about the competencies and methodologies used in teaching information ethics in library and information science (LIS) curricula. It has been observed that the sharing of experiences in the information field in what is taught and why students engage in information ethics remains unexplored. There is no consensus on the pedagogy best suited for teaching and learning information ethics. Teaching information ethics requires a diverse range of teaching methods that facilitate ethical development through promoting students cognitive, effective and social development. This study established that the main teaching methods used for ethics courses in library and classroom discussions and case studies. The study concluded that the pedagogy used should take cognizance of the objective information science curricula in four public universities in Kenya, were lectures and seminars, of information ethics education and be appropriate to the lecturer and the class.
