The book approaches the subject of ethics in science from a pedagogical and pragmaticviewpoint and addresses the need to effectively deal with these issues in science classroomsat the K-12 and undergraduate levels, drawing on real-world cases to do so. The book alsoexplores ethical issues in connection with recent biotechnological advances and urges thereader to move beyond a disciplinary understanding and adopt an interdisciplinary viewof the entire issue. Intended to initiate a process of reflecting on and investigating these ethical issues relatedto biotechnologies, and to enable the reader to take a personal stance on these issues ratherthan being led by outside agencies, the book offers a source of in-depth study material forresearchers working in this area, as well as a training manual for teachers at both in-service& pre-service level, teacher educators, curriculum designers and professionals working inthe field. Combining theory and practice, and including teachers’ reflections on their ownpedagogic practice, it offers a valuable resource to help teaching professionals conductexperiments and achieve pedagogic innovations in their own work. “‘Ethics in Science- Pedagogic Issues & Concerns’ is an excellent textbook for high school andcollege students that provides an overview of the ethical issues in science and technology andincludes useful cases studies and questions for discussion.
