Abstract

Technology has a strong impact on the way we live our lives, on our behaviour. Technology seems thereby to be a strong factor in the ethical aspects of our daily live. Being aware of these aspects is part of the responsibility of the designer. Experts in Ethics of Technology support designers in developing this awareness. However valuable this support is, designers may perceive this approach as restrictive rather than inspiring. Moreover, this approach may be perceived as insights enforced upon them rather than as felt from within. This paper explores how the development of ethical awareness in design education can be addressed from a positive perspective, exploring the personal frame of values as a possible starting point for ethical reflections on designing.
