Abstract

Lecturers use technology for teaching to make learning more interactive and meet the different learning needs of students to promote their learning outcomes. The use of technology by lecturers will achieve the global trend of student-centered learning, where the course curriculum, pedagogy and type of technology should be focused on the needs of the students. To achieve meeting the needs of the students in a class, lecturers adopt technology such as interactive boards, learning management systems, videos, webcam to deliver their course content. However, the appropriate technology must be adopted for the topics in each course and used based on the rules and regulation referred to as ethics. Lecturers must use technology appropriately to avoid unethical acts such as copyright infringement and plagiarism in the retrieval of information resources from electronic sources such as the internet. Literature has revealed that lecturers are involved in unethical acts and need to be educated on ethical use of technology. This chapter examines the use of technology by lecturers for teaching, ethical behavior and recommended that regular ethical education should be provided to the lecturers through information literacy programs for them to become knowledgeable in the ethics of using technology and avoid unethical acts.
