Sex Differences in Learning is a one credit on-line course based on the recent book by Lise Eliot, Pink Brain, Blue Brain. We read and discuss the book, compare the author?s conclusions to other research on sex differences, and consider implications of sex differences for teaching, care-giving, and parenting. We examine fallacies in current popular views of differences between the sexes. Students develop better understanding of the origins and meaning of sex differences, and consider their own practices in working with children and adolescents.
Students read Pink Brain, Blue Brain in the first two weeks of the course, write critiques and reflections on the material, and then engage in discussion and consideration of implications of the research and suggestions for minimizing unnecessary sex differences. Students must be prepared to do the reading and keep up with assignments throughout the course.
