Abstract

Courses in bioethics cover a number of sensitive topics, including the ethics of abortion, elective surgery, collegiate hookup culture, and assisted dying in persons with mental illness, among many others. This can be difficult for students managing these issues in their personal lives. One way to teach responsibly, while also not hurting anyone, is to offer choices in the assignment structure, not require attendance at every class session, and inform students early on about the course content. Faculty often conceive and employ these modifications without input from students or relevant campus professionals. In this session, I present the result of a faculty-administrator-student collaboration aimed at producing a more inclusive, but still rigorous and responsible, bioethics course, one that meets DEI, Title IX, and counseling center best practices. Our process was an efficient one that faculty members on other campuses might easily replicate.
