Business teacher educators are being challenged to establish ethical frameworks to teach students to solve problems related to business ethics and to demonstrate the connection between leadership and ethical behavior. In addition, business teacher education programs, housed in business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), are being affected by the demands placed by the Ethics Education Task Force of AACSB International to renew and revamp their commitment to business ethics education by concentrating on the connection between leadership and values. Following an ethical framework developed by The Center for Ethics at Harvard University, this chapter reviews models for sound ethical decision-making; discusses academic honesty policy issues; provides strategies for detecting online plagiarism; gives strategies for teaching cyberethics; proposes future trends; and, presents a resource list of Web sites to assist faculty in detecting plagiarism.
