Swen Körner, Stefanie Schardien, Birte Steven-Vitense, Steffen Albach and Edgar Dorn

Gene doping is regarded as the form of performance enhancement in elite sports with the greatest potential which also raises issues for all of society that transcend competitive sport. This book brings together detailed concepts for lessons dealing with the scientific, legal, ethical, and social aspects of gene doping. The lessons have been applied in class and extensively annotated for classroom use. Upper secondary level students may choose out of various options which will refine and expand their subject expertise as well as their methodology, decision-making and responsibility in accordance with their subject focus, interdisciplinary approach, and curricular objectives.

User Notes


The teaching unit consists of two parts, the teacher’s materials and the student materials. The teacher’s materials have detailed explanations, horizons of expectations, or pointers to potential applications for all documents in the student binder. The following are potential applications: 1. Teachers who are interested in offering a comprehensive overview that takes into account scientific, ethical, and legal aspects of the topic should take up the classic option (5–7 hours) or the alternate option (2–3 hours). The classic option covers all material in the student binder and may be printed out com- pletely starting from page 91. 2. Teachers who wish to focus on their specialty, i.e., do not chiefly wish to pur- sue interdisciplinary objectives, can choose from among the modular options (2 hours and up). This will also work for teachers who, due to preparation time constraints, opt to treat the topic of gene doping in the context of their subject. 3. For an accelerated approach, all materials in the student binder can be surveyed initially to choose individual materials for customized use in the classroom. Please feel free to contact should questions arise about de- ploying the teaching unit.
