Small Group Activities
This section of the PRC contains a variety of activities that are selected to actively engage students in managing professional conflict, applying ethical reasoning, analyzing moral dilemmas, and managing difficult situations in professional practice. These activities may be used in traditional classroom settings, assigned as out-of-class activities, formatted for online use or developed as Team Based Learning (TBL) exercises. The Staff of the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities (CBMH) will be happy to work with UMMC instructors who wish to embed any of the activities into their curriculum or who wish to develop new activities to address specific professionalism content. The CBMH staff may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Antibiotic Resistance and Dual Use |
Author: Daniel A. Vallero, Ph.D
Dr. David Vallero of the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University has developed an ethics teaching tool that fits very well into a bioscience curriculum. The tool includes an annotated presentation titled "Humility and Hubris in Science: The Rewards and Risks of Emerging Technologies" and a content-rich group activity that focuses on scientific responsibility. These materials can be the basis of an excellent Team Based Learning (TBL) activity. The depth of this material and the scientific complexity are suitable for students at the graduate level.
