Creating Gender inclusive classrooms

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
“Education is a catalyst for social change and a condition for the achievement of fundamental human rights. Mainstreaming gender equality in education and training policy remains crucial in countries where equal access to education is taken as a given, which is the case in the majority of EU Member States” (Eige, Gender in Education and Training, 2016).
The aim of this course is to help teachers develop a gender-sensitive approach in their environment and work practices. Through this 5-day program, participants will become familiar with gender-related terms and issues and develop the skills to assess the gender sensitivity or responsiveness of their teaching and to evaluate the learning material.

Learning outcomes:
Participants will be able to:

  • Deconstruct gender constructions and stereotypes
  • Analyse their environment and work practices in a gender perspective
  • Critically evaluate the learning material in a gender perspective
  • Critically evaluate how teachers can promote gender equality in and through education
  • Produce and Present an Action Plan (participants identify changes they can implement to increasing gender responsiveness in their environments)
  • Produce a checklist for a gender sensitive teacher to be used at different times and to be shared in the participants’ environments
