GTCS Webinar: Improving Gender Balance and Equalities

GTCS Webinar SeriesJoin us for a webinar with Dr Heather Earnshaw, Education Officer at Improving Gender Balance Scotland, Education Scotland and Dr Sarah McGeown, Senior Lecturer in Developmental Psychology, Moray House School of Education, Edinburgh University. They will discuss the research around gender imbalances in learning and how stereotypes affect boys and girls.

In this webinar, Dr Heather Earnshaw and Dr Sarah McGeown will take a critical look at the evidence for sex differences in education and share research literature on gender stereotypes and unconscious bias. They hope to engage in a discussion about how gender stereotypes have a negative impact on both boys and girls and how early years professionals and teachers can actively challenge gender stereotypes in their classroom.
