November 5 and 7. Training for secundary school teachers
The Foundation will contribute to the 7th edition of the "Teachers and Science" professional development programme for high school teachers by offering an introductory bioethics course. The course will provide a general introduction to this area, with particular emphasis on the medical sphere, addressing topics such as the doctor–patient relationship, bioethics at the end of life, participation in clinical trials, and the use of medical resources.
"Teachers and Science" is a programme of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera that offers continuing professional development to high school science teachers in Catalonia. It is designed to provide teachers with opportunities for continuing development and specialist training in their subject areas, with the aim that they will then apply this knowledge in the classroom, helping to stimulate an interest in science among their pupils.
