How is Gender Associated with “Good” Learning and Perceptions of “Good” Teaching

Event Date & Time

  • January 20, 2016
    1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Description

Female, male and LGBT*TQIA+, instructors, TAs and students all experience some levels of gender stereotypes in the classrooms.  As educators, how do we use gender to conform to or challenge expectations and assumptions about the look and conduct of “the person in charge” through how we look, act, and sound? Being aware of gender bias could also help us recognize our own complicity in perpetuating stereotypes and problematic behaviours. At this Contract Faculty Community of Practice, Jennifer Gagnon, Contract Faculty with the Department of Political Science, will facilitate a discussion on gender and sexism in the classroom with the goals to improve education for both teachers and students.

Please register early to help us prepare the right amount of refreshments for this Community of Practice meeting.
