The British Council opened registration for a free online course, whose theme is “Gender in Language Teaching”, with the objective of teaching teachers, especially those of English language, how to teach without replicating gender stereotypes. Subscriptions can be made through the official website.

The course will be taught in English by a team from the United Kingdom and, therefore, the Brazilian participants will be accompanied by an English teacher specialized in gender: Tamires Gama (@simplifica.ingles). This follow-up will happen on Telegram, and will not only allow for clearing up doubts with Tamires, but also to interact with other Brazilian participants.

The purpose of the course is to offer participants the opportunity to learn and debate the following issues:

- BKDR -

• Ways of perceiving gender inequalities within the classroom;
• Stereotypes associated with boys and girls;
• Development of the gender debate in educational discussion;
• Ways to explain and mitigate gender barriers in education.
