Students’ accounts of the ethics of using social media in corporate social responsibility education: A Twitter exercise

Tutkimustuotokset: KonferenssiesitysAbstraktiTieteellinen


Over the last decade, there have been a large number of technological developments with significant implications for management education. Among these development, social media has emerged as a learning space which provide access to mostly free online content, including articles, blogs, videos, and discussions. Although several studies have discussed the value of social media in supporting corporate social responsibility (CSR) learning, little attention has been given to the ethical issues surrounding the integration of these interactive technologies in CSR teaching and learning practices. With this in mind, I seek to examine student’s accounts of the ethics of using Twitter in a CSR course in a Nordic University. In doing so, I follow a constructionist and interpretive perspective on data collection and analysis. The data consist of 20 narratives written by students during the fall semester of 2022. A total number of 22 students from different nationalities participated in the course. Approximately 60 per cent of the students were female and 40 per cent male. Preliminary findings suggest that although student’s accounts refer to major ethical issues of using Twitter in education, there is a lack of consistency in how they approach the same ethical concerns in relation to the use of social media in their private life.
