What one issue affects every decision made in schools?
Behind every decision, whether made by a student or a teacher, is a gender. This doesn’t mean that males make masculine decisions and females feminine ones, but it does mean that gender - and its many nuances – runs through every decision and every situation within schools.
With relevance to teachers, counsellors and school leaders, this course will explain the gender dynamics happening in your classrooms. Dr Whitehead will explore the gendered nature of schooling, gender issues affecting students, and appropriate responses to changing gender norms. Offering insight into current gender theory and contemporary practice in schools, the course delivers fresh insight into this essential, but often overlooked, aspect of education.
You will leave the course:
Understanding the gender dynamics operating in your class/school and the effect on student performance.
Knowledgeable about the changes in 21st Century gender relations and their impact on student, teacher and manager identities.
With fresh insight into gender issues relating to school leadership and management.
