Popular Podagogy

A podcast for the teachers, by the teachers.

Popular Podagogy is a podcast from the Queen’s University Faculty of Education that will cover big teaching ideas in a way that will allow all teachers (and maybe even some parents) an opportunity to relate on a variety of emotional levels. Our guests will include top researchers and instructors from our faculty and beyond, as well as practicing teachers to combine big educational ideas with the everyday life of being a teacher. We hope that as you listen to this podcast, you will have an opportunity to relate to the lives of other teachers, enjoy some of our stories and maybe even pick up a tip or a trick along the way.

Gender: Your Guide by Dr. Lee Airton

An authentic and accessible guide to understanding—and engaging in—today’s gender conversation. On sale now.

The days of two genders—male, female; boy, girl; blue, pink—are over, if they ever existed at all. Gender is now a global conversation, and one that is constantly evolving. More people than ever before are openly living their lives as transgender men or women, and many transgender people are coming out as neither men or women, instead living outside of the binary. Gender is changing, and this change is gaining momentum.

We all want to do and say the right things in relation to gender diversity—whether at a job interview, at parent/teacher night, and around the table at family dinners. But where do we begin?
