Gender in the model course
Gender in the model course in medicine
In the model course at the Charité, gender aspects and gender didactics were systematically and interdisciplinary anchored in the curriculum. With the commitment of the women's and gender equality officers and the support of the Berlin Equal Opportunities Program (BCP), a position was established at the Dieter Scheffner specialist center that is solely responsible for gender-specific aspects and gender-oriented didactics in the model course. Ms. Ludwig coordinates the anchoring of gender and diversity in teaching and didactics.
Gender & diversity-oriented teaching as a quality feature
Gender-equitable teaching can thus contribute to an overall increase in the quality of teaching, because it gives teachers and learners methods to deal with and use social and cultural diversity.
