Opening Doors

The Academy is proud to partner this interdisciplinary conference on gender in education. 

Presented by the IOP and GEO, this conference aims to bring together practitioners and academics to discuss the important issue of gender and education.  As you may be aware, the Institute has done a lot of work on gender issues in STEM subjects. The factors determining student choices are connected to much broader issues and our most recent project Opening Doors, funded by the GEO, had no such subject emphasis and instead focussed on whole school culture. The conference will be chaired by Dame Barbara Stocking and will launch the findings of our project. This will be followed by reviews of current research in the fields of social science, neuroscience and psychology from Professor Louise Archer, Dr Stephanie Burnett Heyes and Dr Gijsbert Stoet and an afternoon panel discussion.

Delegates at the conference will represent a range of learned associations, academics, educators and policy makers.

Date: 20th October 2015 10am – 4pm

Location: 8 Northumberland Avenue, London

Cost: £60
