Het Ethiek Instituut heeft een aantal e-courses ontwikkeld die toegankelijk zijn voor contractanten. Deze vorm van onderwijs is in het bijzonder geschikt voor zelfstandige studenten die ethiekonderwijs zonder contacturen willen volgen, zoals internationale geïnteresseerden of professionals die werk en studie willen combineren. Hieronder vindt u een overzicht van onze e-courses.

Research Ethics

  • 6 weeks / 7 hours per week
  • 1.5 EC
  • €385
  • Academic certificate: yes
  • Available for UU students (MA level): yes

Volunteers are often asked to take part in medical research in order to improve the health and well-being of others, now and in the future. However noble the aim, this raises many ethical questions. How can we ensure that participants give their genuinely informed consent? What should be provided to control groups during clinical trials? How can we weigh the risks and benefits of various studies? How can we ensure scientific integrity in research? This course will deal with these and other issues, integrating theoretical insights and recent real-life case studies. More information: SecretariaatFenR.GW@uu.nl.

Ethics of Animal Welfare

  • 5 weeks
  • 2.5 EC
  • €785
  • Academic certificate: yes
  • Available for students UU (MA level): yes

Although there are many courses available about ethics in general or animal welfare in particular, these subjects are rarely addressed in combination. However, any discussion of animal welfare requires an ability to understand and debate the ethical background and moral aspects involved. Veterinarians, as well as scientists, managers and policymakers working in the field of animal management, will therefore find this interdisciplinary course highly useful. It offers knowledge and tools that will enable participants to deal with ethical questions on both a theoretical and a practical level. More information: SecretariaatFenR.GW@uu.nl.
