The Values of Biological Education from the Point of View of 2020 Events (or Biotechnological Human Improvement through the Eyes of Students)

Elena Komarova, Arnold Kiv

Abstract

The main idea of the research is that the value potential of academic disciplines contributes to the implementation of the idea of sustainable development in the framework of secondary and higher biological education. As a result of a study carried out in 2019, we found that in basic school the content of the subject ``Biology'' is primarily aimed at the formation of ideas about the main terminal values -- ``life'', ``health'', ``nature"; in high school -- about terminal values -- ``life'', ``health'', and also about instrumental values -- ``persistence''. In our 2020 study, we investigated the influence of the bioethical content of biological disciplines on the formation of value ideas of future biology students and future biology teachers about modern scientific innovations (using the example of genome editing and biotechnological human improvement), the development of the ability to evaluate them from a bioethical point of view. It is assumed that the formation of the ability to give a bioethical assessment of events taking place in the scientific world and ongoing discoveries is one of the main in the implementation of the idea of sustainable development in the field of education.
