Casa do Professor coordinates an international project on gender equality

The project is co-funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Program and involves countries such as Cyprus, Greece, United Kingdom and Romania.

Casa do Professor is coordinating an international project for gender awareness and equality. The T-SHIRT (Tools on Supporting the Figure for Issues of Gender Traditionality and Disparities) aims to combat gender inequalities by training teachers and raising awareness among students.

In addition to workshops and a conference in 2022, this project will provide courses on implementing gender equality, awareness and a spirit of reflection in the classroom will be promoted over the next few months; strategies and techniques to raise students’ awareness of gender perception issues; digital courses, playful content and webinars.

According toJorge Soares, president of Casa do Professor, “the development and sharing of the most innovative educational practices is, in fact, an objective of our institution, which has contributed, for decades, to the professional development and social intervention of educators and teachers of all levels of education”.
