Exploring the Ethics of Attention for a Digital World

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For many years, I have been investigating how to bring a more balanced, contemplative focus to our online lives, helping students (as well as faculty and staff) engage more attentively, and thus more effectively and healthfully, with their digital devices and apps. Most recently, I have been extending this work, asking students to explicitly investigate their ethical responsibilities while online, with special focus on the ethics of attention: Why does it matter, ethically, how we pay attention to ourselves and others in our online interactions, and how do we go about doing this? How and when should we use (or abstain from using) our devices in face-to-face interactions, and why? In this presentation, I will offer some of the exercises and strategies that I have been developing, and share student responses, including some of the challenges that arise in doing this work.
