This portal shares opportunities to develop pedagogical and pastoral practices which support trans and gender-diverse students.
Who are trans and gender-diverse people?
A trans person is someone whose gender identity is different to that which they were assigned at birth. Gender-diverse people include those who identify outside of the binary of male and female, and/or who do not conform to the gendered expectations placed on them.
Why do we need trans-inclusive pedagogy?
The cis-normative and binary nature of many pedagogical and pastoral practices can result in the exclusion of trans and gender-diverse students, and negatively impact their sense of belonging, attainment, continuation & completion, and academic progression.
