Exploring Bioethics - A New Model for
During this half-day Symposium, science and education experts from NIH focused their
presentations and activities on the teaching of bioethics in the high school biology
classroom. They modeled field-tested lessons that can engage students in understanding
current practices in biomedicine, such as genetic testing. The presenters also lead
discussions regarding the ethical concepts of fairness, respect, and weighing harms
and benefits, and shared strategies for facilitating rich ethics discussions in
the classroom. All participants received educational materials from NIH.
This symposium was held at the NSTA National Conference on Science Education in
New Orleans, LA. The program was designed for teachers of grades 9-12.
