The Ethics of Technology: How to Out-Smart Your Smart Phone

Technology is always transformative. But the changes it brings aren’t always so good — for us, our colleagues, our clients, our families or our firms. Our omnipresent personal technology surrounds us with ethical issues: from distracted driving, to Netflix binging, to online shopping at work. And that just scratches the surface.

Greg Conderacci, who teaches this course, is no Luddite. He has all the same tech toys you do. And, as author of Getting UP! Supercharging Your Energy, he has researched and written extensively about their impact. A BLI Senior Fellow, consultant, and faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, he is a sought-after adviser for personal and corporate change.
