Gender sensitive teaching aims at supporting equally the learning of female and male students. The fact that there are as many female as male students in higher education does not make university teaching automatically gender sensitive. Research rather shows that there is a „hidden curriculum‟, which transmits unconsciously and implicitly gender bias. In particular prevailing gender stereotyped perceptions and expectations with regard to women and men have an impact on student´s attitudes towards learning and engagement with the subject as well as their academic achievements. Gender sensitive teaching, therefore, considers and recognizes the impact of gender aspects in interactions between teaching staff and students as well as among students and in teaching content and materials. This collection of online material aims at encouraging teaching staff to integrate the gender dimension into their teaching. A variety of information is provided in form of toolboxes, best practice examples, manuals, guidelines and training tools.
