Universities are places full of diverse people.
Addressing students of every origin, gender and life situation is the aim of diversity-sensitive teaching. The “Toolbox Gender and Diversity in Teaching” shall equip university lecturers for this task.
On the Toolbox website, one can find a comprehensive overview of ideas for a gender- and diversity-aware teaching. Apart from introductory texts and literature, recommendations for gender- and diversity-suitable language are presented.
The Toolbox-developers Kathleen Heft and Melanie Bittner from the Margherita-von-Brentano-Zentrum (FUB) encourage teaching personnel to use the provided Toolbox at every level of teaching. Regardless of age or working experience, the Toolbox can be a help to identify possible subconsciously rooted prejudices and generally offers inspiration for various teaching situations.
