Please read the text below, about a new online video course I am creating. The course currently contains 26 lectures with assignments, but I may add additional lectures later. Contact me if you want me to know more.
Bioethics – the ethics of everyday life
Bioethics is a challenging and exciting combination of policy, law, ethics, science & technology, politics, philosophy and even more, such as economy. Literally, bioethics is the ethics of life.
This course is particularly well suited for people who often find themselves faced with difficult choices and in discussions to do with diversity, inclusivity and green choices.
You want to accomplish positive change, but do not always know what approach to take and may often find yourself at a loss during discussions with certain professionals, business people and politicians.
You may have to draw up policies for your city or smaller community or have to argue for or against certain options in meetings.
These policies and meetings could concern for example housing, business developments, employment strategies, transport or education, planning and even policing.
You may, for example, be a city councillor in Britain or a city commission member in the United States, or anyone else in public office anywhere. You could be running a voluntary organisation. You could also be interested in the topic because you are around disabled people either in your job or in your family or are looking into IVF.
This course will provide you with a better foundation to negotiate for what you believe in and help you build a better future for all. It will make it easier for you to identify traditional views and their shortcomings. It can also make you see more easily where other people’s opinions are coming from, which can enable you to build bridges to cross such chasms.
After this course, you will likely find that you are more motivated and continue to develop your critical thinking skills.
You will gain a greater awareness of innovative views in areas of diversity and inclusivity.
You will build up more knowledge to support so-called green choices.
You will be more skilful in formulating and supporting your own views during meetings and negotiations.
You will gain more flexibility in countering traditional arguments during meetings and negotiations.
You will be able to add much more variety and strength to your written communications.
This course requires your commitment. A basic education should be enough to pull you through with the support from the other participants and me. There are assignments and discussions, though, and the topics we tackle can be pretty serious. (That is why I also include lighter lessons with assignments that may make you smile.)
The willingness to look at societal issues from different angles can also be a plus.
