• assess and provide feedback on the participants’ demonstrations of teaching skills under the guidance of experienced teachers.

Ethics Teacher Training Courses are conducted by a team of experts with extensive experience in ethics education, from the universities in Croatia, as well as outside the country.

Participants should have a Master’s degree (in areas such as law, medicine, philosophy, ethics, or social sciences), hold a University faculty appointment to teach courses, and have good command of English language.
