About the course

The aim of the course is to illuminate how gender intersects with science practices and the teaching and learning of science. The seminars will work through different ways in which gender dimensions impact science education.

In the course we will discuss contemporary research on gender and science education, which will prepare participants for designing research-informed teaching practices with a consideration to gender and other categories of difference.
