Gender and diversity in teaching and learning
The course Gender and diversity in teaching and learning provides a space to analyze gender and diversity both within the university as an organization and in teaching and learning situations in the classroom.
How can we understand gender, ethnicity/race, class, ability? What do we mean by diversity, equal treatment, intersectionality? And how do they work in the university and in the classroom?
The course addresses how gender and diversity are done in different teaching and learning situations in the classroom, in policy documents, and in legislation. It analyses universities’ institutional and cultural dimensions. Not least, it gives you tools to create more accessible and less exclusive classrooms.
The course consists of a combination of
- hands-on exercises
- and participants’ presentations.
Throughout the course, you will write a course project and will receive feedback from others in the class and from the course teachers. An important element of the course is to learn from each other’s experiences as teachers and to put these in dialogue with your readings of the course literature.
