Toolkit for Integrating Gender-Sensitive Approach into Research and Teaching
The idea of this Toolkit is to help researchers integrate gender dimension in their ongoing research and teaching (of under- and postgraduate courses), and to apply while conceiving new projects and students’ curricula – especially those in test institutions involved in the GARCIA project (Gendering the Academy and Research: combating Career Instability and Asymetries, garciaproject.eu). This Toolkit should help research and teaching staff in thinking in what way is gender relevant for their research and curricula.
Gender-sensitive research takes into account the differences between men and women in all aspects of the research, from an initial idea, formulating research questions, objectives and methodologies to the outcomes and presentation of results.
Apart from integrating gender into the content, gender-sensitive approach strives to provide equal participation of both women and men in scientific work. Gender-sensitive approach takes into account transgender and transsexual population as well.
