Bioethics Workshop for Educators

         

Weekend Bioethics Workshop for Teachers

A late-winter weekend workshop for teachers will be held at Heartland Area Education Agency (AEA 11) in Johnston, Iowa, on January 28, February 4, and February 25, 2006 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This course is designed for educators who are interested in discussing bioethics with their students or extension audiences. The focus will be on ethical issues in biotechnology, but other topics relevant to both agriculture and human health will be covered. Students will work through activities and case studies that they can take home and use with their classes, and create their own bioethics case studies. Pedagogical issues in teaching bioethics also will be covered, including appropriate objectives for bioethics units; various approaches to bioethics pedagogy; how to relate bioethics issues to personal ethical issues familiar to students; how to help students identify ethical issues; and how to address bioethics while respecting diversity of views in the classroom.

Teachers can earn one graduate credit from Iowa State University or one staff development credit from AEA 11.
