This symposium will focus on ‘How to teach Bioethics’ and will convey evidence-based skills and didactic means through which the teaching of bioethics will be experiential, meaningful and will be absorbed by learners emotionally, cognitively and behaviorally. The participants will be exposed to practical and applicable tools for teaching / training of bioethics. They will experience special, fascinating, original processes and will receive high added value to their accumulated experience in teaching bioethics to their students. Osmosis learning will be discussed. This is the art of unconscious learning, where one stops studying materials and start absorbing them. It is an analogy for natural, and indirect way of learning. To learn through osmosis means a way of learning seamlessly. It is about listening, absorbing the use of role play, debates, cinema and street play. It is how you apply meaning to what you see and stimulates the innate talent of teachers and enhances the ‘Craft of Teaching’. It stimulates the art for plucking meaning out of presentations. This is how ‘Intuition’ is developed, which is the pulling force that separates successful knowledge transfer from some of the conventional forms of teaching bioethics. The innovative reformed methodology has the ability in part of influencing the limbic system in the neurocognition of knowledge transfer.
