On the path to training more teachers in Bioethics

The Regional Program of Bioethics and Ethics of Science of UNESCO (Montevideo Office) and the University of the Republic held the "Ethics Teachers Training Course, sixth edition". It was hosted in Montevideo, Uruguay, from October 7 to 10, 2019.

The objective of the seminar was to train teaching experts by providing methodological tools in bioethics education (deliberative method, use of cases, problem-based teaching, etc.) and to offer special strategies at different levels.

The activity was aimed at training teachers who work in the educational task in bioethics at the undergraduate or postgraduate level and offer a space for exchanging experiences. Introductory topics were included for the expansion of the bioethics and educational content agenda, such as the human rights approach, environmental and social issues.

It was a unique opportunity for the training and exchange of trainers, meeting with leading international bioethicists around key issues of bioethics education from the Human Rights approach promoted by UNESCO.
