Ethical analysis was an important feature of a ‘collapsed day’ programme in which science and humanities teachers collaborated in producing a novel and interesting event for Key Stage 4 pupils on social and ethical aspects of genetics. Pupils valued the opportunity to learn more about genetics and ethical implications and share views. Teachers of science and humanities valued the opportunity to share expertise with each other and promote pupils’ engagement with a socio-scientific issue. However, further professional development should be available for teachers across disciplines to deal with ethical analysis effectively.
