    things we see everyday as well as raise issues that we will inevitably encounter in any type of work environment in the future no matter what gender you identify as I take a collaborative approach to teaching and learning meaning that I recognize how much students know about the topic and want to highlight everyone s expertise to the benefit of the class when we can I ll steer the ship but students are invited to navigate Summer is one of the best times for this course because we have time to deep dive into your interest areas more than we can during the school year What draws you to this subject area I am trained in child development and policy through working in the field I realized just how much the experience of work good and bad is affected by gender among other things What do you hope students will learn from your course I hope students take away a sense of how much of work is affected good and bad by gender and how much of this is in our power to control and change Other Small summer classes don t just mean being able to deep dive
