Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book examines university teaching from several perspectives: What male and female professors do in the classroom, their perceptions and feelings about teaching, and how students respond. Data were gathered by observing professors in their classrooms, doing selected unstructured interviews, and soliciting evaluations/feedback from their students. This triangulation of data provides a richness of information and insight into the process of university teaching.

In addition to providing useful feedback to professors and administrators, this study integrates several social psychological approaches to gender with more recent feminist formulations. The findings support recently developed perspectives which argue that gender is a constantly created social phenomenon, not one cast securely in the concrete of social structure.

"The topic is very significant in an era when higher education is under attack for not educating students properly. Rather than examining curriculum, as Bennett, Bloom, and the other conservatives have done, this book studies the behaviors and sentiments of the producers themselves -- the college faculty." -- Catherine White Berheide, Skidmore College
