About this module
Understanding gender equality in teaching practice is a three-hour self-study training module, which is divided into three one-hour units.
- By the end of unit 1, you'll be able to compare male and female brains, describe the differences between the way boys and girls learn and outline some of the challenges for educating both girls and boys
- By the end of unit 2, you'll be able to analyse teacher–student interactions, examine female and male roles in group work, identify when gender bias results from using gender labels and debate whether girls and boys should be taught separately due to learning differences.
- By the end of unit 3, you’ll be able to observe gender patterns in teacher–student interactions, observe female and male roles in group work and reflect on the pros and cons of using gender to decide seating arrangements.
