CREATE Ethics Workshop

Heather O'Brien

This year's Ethics Workshop will be taught by Professor Heather O'Brien, and will take place during CPSC 544 class-time. Students will review the course ethics form (prepared by DFP core faculty Dongwook Yoon and Joanna McGrenere), and will complete their TCPS-3 Ethics training. Students will review several case scenarios, and examine them according to the ACM Code of Ethics. 

All CREATE students are required to take a DFP Ethics Workshop, which are offered annually.

If you are a DFP student and have missed a workshop, please contact for the materials.
