Gender Dynamics In and Out of the Classroom

Emily Gerstell, CTL Graduate Fellow, English

Monday, February 4 | 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: In this workshop, we’ll talk about how gender – both your own identity and that of your students – can impact your teaching in ways both positive and negative. We’ll consider how gender dynamics work in the classroom – not only between you and your students and but also between students – as well as how gender dynamics affect your role as a teacher when you are outside the classroom (e.g. in office hours, as a mentor, around setting boundaries, around setting expectations about availability, etc.). We’ll also work on practical tips and strategies for addressing issues that arise around gender dynamics in and out of the classroom.
