Matsuyama JALT:

Teaching Only Women: Are single-sex schools relevant?

Date: Sunday, May 14th, 2006 Time: 2:15 PM - 4:20 PM

Speaker: Brenda Hayashi, Miyagi Gakuin Women's University

At JALT2005 Curtis Kelly, Marc Helgesen and Brenda Hayashi led a discussion titled Do women learn differently? A conversation. The lively audience participation demonstrated that there are teachers interested in the following questions:

  1. What exactly is a women's university?
  2. Do women's schools offer any advantages for women?
  3. Do women learn differently? Are there prevalent learning styles? and
  4. Do gender-based pedagogies apply in co-ed schools?
The presentation will recapitulate these points and introduce additional studies that indicate there are gender differences in learning.
