Description

NEP 2020 (Section 6-Equitable and Inclusive Education: Learning for All) articulates the need for removing biases and stereotypes in the school curriculum and integrating equity and inclusion in teacher education.

While inclusive and equitable education is indeed an essential goal in its own right, it is also critical to achieving an inclusive and equitable society in which every citizen has the opportunity to dream, thrive, and contribute to the nation. It would be no exaggeration to say that all other teaching-learning processes are dependent on this often neglected but significant aspect of education. School years are a significant period of development and the learners’ experiences with and reflections on gender in these years can be influential in shaping their practices and questioning the biases in their future life.

This course will help the participants move from awareness to action in integrating gender-inclusive pedagogies in the classroom.
