GATL - Gender Awareness in Teaching and Learning

The pedagogical field of interest

Whilst Higher Education in Scandinavia is an attractive option and recruitment levels are relatively high, recruitment to different subjects still tends to be traditionally gendered (OECD, 2012). This means that some classes are predominated by male or female students which may in turn affect gender discourse and perpetuate subjects’ and professions’ gender stereotypes. In addition, the tacit nature of our implicit biases makes it difficult to identify them and in turn change our own practices. Through the GATL SIG we will share strategies for fostering inclusive educational environments through the integration of gender awareness in teaching and learning and opportunities for gender discourses for teachers and students. In addition to pedagogic practices we also recognise the importance of facilitating access to empirical data and research studies on gender and university recruitment, teaching, learning, assessment and research.
