Abstract [en]

IT dominates and permeates every aspect of our life. Therefore it is of outmost significance to work well and satisfy our important values. Decision makers, developers, users and purchasers need high ethical competence and confidence in working with ethical issues during IT systems development. Our approach, based on classical philosophy and psychological research focuses on ethical competence and skills. Suitable tools and working methods that support decision makers of handling ethical usability issues is the aim of our research. EthXpert, one of our tools, supports the adoption of a holistic approach, of critical reasoning and of systematic analysis of the ethical aspects during concrete IT systems development. In an evaluation study of EthXpert users were able to identify significant ethical aspects and to integrate those into the design of the IT systems they were investigating.
