Representatives of the Bioethics Commission share their views on the importance of bioethics education.
To support ethics education and facilitate the integration of bioethics into traditional and non-traditional educational and professional settings, the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Bioethics Commission) has developed pedagogical materials to facilitate easy access to the material in its reports by professors, instructors, practitioners, and the public.
User Guides are organized by field and serve as quick reference documents to help professionals and educators identify relevant Bioethics Commission educational materials. Current guides address:
Videos include short videos that can be used to augment classroom activities and webinars that provide information about bioethics education and Bioethics Commission educational materials, including how they can be used to integrate ethics with education in various disciplines.
Materials are free and available through the links to the left. Instructors are invited to use these materials, or any portion of them, to integrate bioethics into coursework, discussions, and professional development activities in all disciplines. Feedback is welcome, including insight into how the materials have been used and suggestions for how they might be improved for use in the future.
Additional materials are under development and will be included upon completion.
