Welcome to a workshop on teaching and learning with Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CeUL). This is a workshop where the language of instruction is English.

Useful for: University teachers and programme directors/directors of study.

About the workshop

Gender has been discussed internationally in relation to higher education over decades. Vertical and horizontal gender segregation, glass ceilings or sticky floors are only some of the keywords in the debate on women and men in the university. The Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) requests that equality between women and men must be taken into account and promoted in the processes at every level of the HEI’s organizations. What does that mean specifically for our work as university teachers? And is it enough that we focus on equality between women and men or how can we take the complexity of intersections of for example gender, language, functionality, sexual orientation or age into account?

In this workshop, we will discuss how norm-critical perspectives can contribute to developing our teaching practice and what do we have to consider when we meet often diverse (or sometimes quite homogeneous) student groups. Participants will be able to contribute with their experiences of working with gender equality in their own diciplines. Obviously, integrating a gender content can look different in different fields. Working with gender sensitive teaching is, however, possible in all fields. Investigating teaching practices, developing a progression throughout programmes and taking (norm-) critical perspectives into account are some of the tools we have for such a developmental work.

The purpose of this workshop is -- in line with national initiatives for more equal participation -- to discuss topics related to gender and teaching in higher education with a starting point in the experiences of the participants in their respective diciplines and institutions.
