An Ethics Teachers’ Training Course (ETTC) is organized by UNESCO and the Alfaisal University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, from 22 to 25 April 2018. A group of 20 to 25 Bioethics professors from the region will be trained.

This Course is a collaborative effort involving UNESCO, the Alfaisal University, the Saudi National Bioethics Committee and the Saudi National Commission for UNESCO. It offers a unique opportunity for participants in the region to enhance their teaching capacities in ethics.

As part of UNESCO’s multifaceted capacity-building strategy, the Ethics Teacher Training Course (ETTC) aims to

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

The Course is conducted in English by a team of international experts with extensive experience in ethics education. d
