The literature says that using creativity helps students to engage more deeply in course topics but what would students say about using creativity? Students from an IT Ethics course and their instructor offer their opinions of how using creativity in position papers affected learning and engagement in the course. We will also share specific examples of the creative approaches that students used as well as describe the course structure.

Keywords: ethics, creativity, enhanced learning, writing, engagement, ownership
