Bioethics Education Network on-line
The website is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Bioethicseducation
The International Bioethics Education Network has a functioning yahoo listserve with over 200 members, in addition to other members of the listserve, which is open to all. The network welcomes individuals with an interest in all approaches to promote the discussion of bioethics, both through formal and non-formal education. If your school or institution wishes to be linked on the site please send the name and details. There is a related yahoo listerve network for students with 160 members: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Bioethics_for_students
The initial network was created by Darryl Macer at Eubios Ethics Institute (www.eubios.info), in 1993, in Japan and New Zealand, with surveys and research on the extent of bioethics across the world. It has been active since.
The goals of the network are
1) Promotion of bioethics education at all levels
2) Promote public discussion of bioethics
We welcome feedback. Some of the issues are controversial, but a balanced approach to these issues is needed, as education should prepare citizens for difficult moral dilemmas that they may face in their life. In recent times new approaches such as community engagement, use of museums exhibitions on bioethics, and other means to promote public discourse have been developed.
There are community, school and university trials of methods for bioethics education in many countries.
Members of this network have produced and shared teaching materials for bioethics education in different countries, for school and university classes. There are various types of classes the materials have been used in. Materials can be downloaded in a growing number of languages from www.eubios.info
Empirical research on the effectiveness of teaching bioethics at different ages and places is encouraged, and the results linked to policy. A regional bioethics education action plan was developed in Asia and the Pacific in collaboration with UNESCO, while the coordinator was Dr. Darryl Macer, the then UNESCO Regional Adviser for Asia and the Pacific in 2006. However, this network is global.
The 2014 meeting was held on the 25 June 2014 during the 12th World Congress of Bioethics in Mexico, during a session of papers on the themes of the network.
