Headline Bioethics: Engagement with Bioethics in the News
Willmott, Chris
Bioscience Education, v21 n1 p3-6 Dec 2013
An exercise is described in which second year undergraduate bioscientists write a reflective commentary on the ethical implications of a recent biological/biomedical news story of their own choosing. As well as being of more real-world relevance than writing in a traditional essay format, the commentaries also have potential utility in helping the broader community understand the issues raised by the reported innovations. By making the best examples available online, the task therefore has the additional benefit of allowing the students to be genuine producers of resources. (Contains 1 figure.)
