Organized by the UNESCO Regional Bioethics Programme (Montevideo Office), and the Instituto de Investigaciones en Bioética, the 4th Ethics Teacher Training Course will take place in Monterrey, Mexico, from 22 to 25 of August 2017.

The training targets bioethics teachers plying in under or in post-graduation level.

Its purpose is to enable expert teachers by giving them methodological tools in bioethics education (deliberative method, problematizing methodology, use of cases, problem-based learning etc.) and offer them special strategies such as TICs and art at different levels.

The course will also include introductory items to spread the disciplinary bioethics paradigm and the educational contents, such as the human rights approach, social and environmental issues among others.

It is a unique opportunity for training and trainers sharing, which will gather highlighted and international bioethicists around key topical issues in bioethics education, from the same Human Rights vision that UNESCO promotes.

We invite the regional and subregional education entities, the Universities and other institutions promoting bioethics education in Latin America and the Caribbean to give to their teachers the opportunity to participate, as well as to every independent teacher interested in that topic to directly subscribe itself.

UNESCO will cover of the registration fees and material expenses for a maximum of 60 selected participants. Travel expenses, accommodation and meals have to be assumed by the participants or by their academic entity.

The applicants will be selected by a committee established for that purpose.

The course will only be given in Spanish.
