Gender in teaching
Good teaching incorporates the issue of gender in the subject-specific content and teaching forms. This goal is integrated into the module descriptions and its implementation is checked, for example through the accreditation of the study programme. The project "Gender in teaching" offers lecturers and students a wide range of advisory services and further training opportunities.

What does gender competence mean?
Gender competence describes the ability of people to identify gender aspects in their work and to act in ways that produce equitable outcomes for men and women. Gender competence comprises three dimensions – knowledge, willingness and capacity:
- Knowledge: The person is aware of gender relations in society and their importance/effect in their subject area/professional field.
- Willingness: Gender stereotypes are perceived as such and the person is motivated to change them.
- Capacity: Describes the ability to work in a gender-sensitive manner and use tools to ensure gender equality.
