Through much planning and brainstorming we came together as a team and happened to stumble upon a dilemma. We only have two months until the Makers Fair, and we have to code for a large set of information. Therefore, instead we decided to take on a more realistic goal. As a team we decided that we would make an Ebook instead of coding the information. Through the Ebook we are able to be more descriptive and we are able to incorporate some unique ideas to make sure that the readers take in the topics discussed in the book by incorporating games in order to get people to learn what we would like them to learn. Through setting our goal, we began our research. Although, Ms. Miesner as the extraordinary teacher she is, helped us realize that in order to make the book first we had to go behind the scenes of a teacher. In other words, we had to define our objectives. Through defining our objectives then we would be able to structure our Ebook.
Through discussing as a team what we wanted our readers to get from the book. Although, this would of never had happened if it were not for the resources that Ms. Miesner introduced to us. Writing Learning Objectives guided us through the process of writing objectives. As well as, though us the purpose behind writing objectives. Such as, making sure that the reader understands what is written. With the list of learning objectives that was given to us we were able to successfully come up with our learning objectives list.
- Define Biomedical Ethics, and explain why Bioethics is important
- Describe the four principles of Biomedical Ethics and their application to the medical field
- Identify the key themes of Biomedical Ethics explained in this Ebook and describe the ethical issues for each
- Briefly explain the historical context of each theme in Biomedical Ethics and its change throughout time
- Identify at least 2 key court cases associated with each theme in bioethics
- Evaluate the decisions of judges in key court cases and their application/impact to the real world
- Express your own views towards certain legislation’s/court decisions and justify your reasoning through the application of biomedical ethics
After we came up with our list then we began to get ideas towards the structure of our book. We decided that each section would have a conclusion of the section, two real life situations, activities and quiz. We decided to have this after each section because we want to make sure that the reader is reviewing the information as much as possible, and understanding the information that is being given to them. Below are the sections of the Ebook.
- Define Biomedical Ethics, Why?
- Doctor-Patient Relationships
- Truth Telling
- Informed Consent
Let us know if there is anything else we can do to make our Ebook fun? Thank you!
