Course description:

The training course designed and organized by UNESCO is a significant departure from the conventional teaching paradigm in which a teacher imparts information upon students in a one-way exchange. Instead, the participants find themselvesin the shoes of their instructors, engaging with their peers in a simulated teaching enviroment that compels them to use the newly acquired educational techniques to guide others through the complex maze of bioethical dilemmas.
