Description

The Centre Seminar: Young children’s views on teachers and their gender

Yuwei Xu - University of Portsmouth, School of Education and Childhood Studies

Yuwei Xu is a Lecturer in children and family studies based at the University of Portsmouth, School of Education and Childhood Studies. He is also about to be awarded his PhD in Education by the University of Glasgow in 2018. Yuwei’s research expertise lies in gender and early childhood studies, and particularly in men’s participation in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) workforce.

In this seminar, Yuwei will present to the participants findings from a cross-cultural study on gender and teacher-child interactions in ECEC settings in Scotland, Hong Kong and Mainland China with children aged 3-6. There will be a particular focus on children’s voices of how they view their teachers of different gender. The seminar will inform about practices that help to improve and facilitate gender diversity and inclusion in ECEC, from children’s perspectives.
