Ethics Teacher Training Course

National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan

This course offers a unique opportunity for participants from Azerbaijan and other countries in the region to enhance their teaching capacities in ethics.

The main objectives of the course are to:

• introduce the students to the means and resources of teaching ethics;
• teach the students the methodologies and methods of teaching ethics; and
• assess and provide feedback on the students’ demonstrations of teaching skills under the guidance of experienced teachers.

Ethics Teacher Training Courses are conducted by a team of international experts with extensive experience in ethics education (Professor Amnon Carmi and Professor Daniella Keidar from the University of Haifa) as well as the experts from Azerbaijan with a local perspective on pertinent issues in ethics and ethics teaching at local institutions (Professor Vugar Mammadov, Institute of Human Rights, National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan).

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 or Russian language.

While the participation in the course is free, the participants will be expected to cover their room and board expenses in the duration of the training.

The deadline for registration is 13th of July, 2012.

The Ethics Teacher Training Courses (ETTC) project is an important component of UNESCO’s capacity-building strategy in bioethics, targeting the young generation of experts and educators engaged in teaching ethics at various academic faculties and institutions around the world, who can serve as agents for expanding and improving ethics teaching programmes in their countries in the near future.
