Education: Teaching and learning ethics & law
Good teaching is informed by sound research. All of our lecturers are involved in research, and most of our researchers and PhD students teach. We teach students in medicine, nursing, technology and natural science.
Medicine, nursing, engineering and other professions involves responsibility. That responsibility is professional, but it also has ethical and legal perspectives. We want to help students develop their ability to understand how ethical and legal issues arise in practice. We also give students the opportunity to practice their critical skills: analyzing ethical and legal problems, finding the relation between them and argue for different views.
Ethics & law for medical students
Students learn to analyze ethical and legal problems in medical practice and argue for their standpoint.
Ethics for nursing students
We focus on ethical competence. Students learn to identify moral dilemmas and to reflect on the values and how they should be weighed, and hopefully also to act.
Ethics for biology students
The best teaching in ethics and biology is achieved when the ethics experts from CRB work together with the biology experts.
