Student diversity is part of the reality of higher education. The different experiences and perspectives can enrich teaching and research. But in everyday life, diversity also often brings challenges: How can I do justice to the different learning conditions of students? Which attributions shape my perception – also unconsciously? How can I create a space in which everyone can learn well? Which teaching attitude and choice of methods can foster a diversity-conscious learning environment?
The workshop is based on a concept of diversity focusing on anti-discrimination, i.e. we focus on diver-sity dimensions that socially “make a difference” because they lead to discrimination/privilege due to power relations such as sexism, racism, classism, etc.

In this workshop, you will …

  • Raising awareness of gender and diversity in academic teaching
  • Having an overview of the dimensions of gender and diversity-conscious didactics
  • Developing practical approaches for the design of gender- and diversity-conscious teaching courses
  • Getting to know resources for the independent development of gender and diversity competence for teaching
