Are you wondering how you, as a teacher, can make your teaching more trans-inclusive or simply curious about what trans-inclusion in education entails? Then this episode is for you.
In this episode, Malin Ekström, Equal Opportunities Officer at the NJ and VH faculties, engages in a conversation with equality consultant Lukas Romson (see his profile below) about trans-inclusive teaching. They discuss various concepts, approaches, and minority stress, as well as what teachers can do when they feel they lack sufficient knowledge.
Lukas and Malin also talk about the upcoming seminar in the fall, "Trans Inclusion in the Teaching Role," where Lukas will return to SLU to teach us more about incorporating trans inclusion in lesson planning, student interactions, internships, and group work.
Keep an eye on the calendar for EPU's pedagogical seminars to find out when and where the seminar will take place.
