Summer Institute: Strategies to Address the Challenges of Female Educators
Explore the issues facing women in academia. Take part in activities to highlight strategies and techniques for improving these situations. Women as educators in higher education often face issues that their male colleagues do not. This can include being stereotyped, challenges establishing authority in the classroom, facing obstacles or opposition from students, and issues in forming connections or relationships with students. This can be especially challenging for women who teach in male-dominated or traditionally masculine fields. This workshop will empower you to assist yourself or women who face challenges in the classroom based on their gender. Lunch is provided. A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.
