CERN's Diversity Office is joining efforts with science teachers

14 Jul 2017 -- Ioanna Koutava

For the third consecutive year, the CERN Diversity Office is facilitating a work group with science teachers on the topic of gender inclusive teaching in the framework of the CERN International Teacher Programme.

The CERN International Teacher Programme welcomes high school science teachers from around the world who would like to update their knowledge of particle physics, learn more about educational resources available, and collaborate with fellow science teachers of different nationalities. During the three weeks' programme, all teachers collaborate in work groups on various topics; “Gender Inclusive Teaching work group” is one of them.

The goal of the work group is to produce a communication tool disseminating recommendations for science teachers to create a gender inclusive environment in the classroom.
