Bioethics course to share

	I am advising one of our senior Bio Majors who has developed 
a student-initiated Bioethics course, in response to a lack of 
current offerings on the subject at our university.  She has done a 
marvelous job, and the course, with faculty guest lectures from the 
sciences and philosophy, is being very well received by students and 
faculty alike.

	My question is this: She would like to write up a short piece 
about the course, how it worked, good topics and references they 
used, comparison with offerings elsewhere, and the like.  We would 
accept it as a student paper, but feel that it would be nice to share 
it with a larger audience.  Do you know of a place we could share, 
post, or even publish such a paper?  The field of bioethics pedagogy 
is a bit beyond my own expertise in developmental genetics.

	Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

	Thank you,
Laurel F. Appel
