Professional Development - Ethical Issues at the Beginning of Life

Professional development (PD) Bay of Plenty

Posted: 28 March 2019
Notice reference #: 1H9sfs

A professional development workshop for high school teachers.

Be absorbed in conversations involving science, philosophy and theology while participating in a variety of activities for engaging your students. Following an historical overview of procreation, the workshop moves to a consideration of the questions that have arisen as a result of the contemporary intersection of procreation and developments in assisted reproduction. 

Topics include: contraception, abortion, prenatal testing, IVF, PGD, surrogacy, frozen embryos, embryo adoption and germline genetic modification.

A gift-based framework will be used to unpack a response to the ethical challenges posed by assisted human reproductive technologies and to offer an authentically human notion of ‘procreative responsibility’.
