The Dale P. Jones Business Ethics Forum, hosted by Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business, will open with a student video contest called "Cyber Scenarios." Finalists' work will be screened and judged on Nov. 7, 2011, 6 p.m.-7:15 p.m. in Cashion 5th floor Banquet Room. The public is welcome.
"I thought this competition would fit well with this technologically savvy and media-oriented generation," said Dr. Mitchell Neubert, Chavanne Chair of Christian Ethics in Business. "This is a fun way to communicate the importance of ethics in a form that students will enjoy."
This event is a partnership between the Hankamer School of Business, Bluefish TV and the Film and Digital Media (FDM) Division of the Department of Communication Studies. The competition engages student teams to produce original short videos that capture ethical dilemmas or challenges related to the use of information, technology and media to focus on challenges students face in school or the workplace.
"The Cyber Scenarios competition will help students see the types of ethical issues they may face in the context of cyberspace, and hopefully, provide some insight on how to apply moral principles towards resolving such issues," said Tim Kayworth, department chair and associate professor of the Information Systems Department at the Business School.
"Not only is this is a great learning experience for students, but it provides participants with an interesting bullet for their resumes and offers the potential of a cash award," said Neubert.
A judging process will determine finalists and the winning team receives a $1000 grand prize determined by a combination of judge and audience voting.
