Prestige Lecture "Rethinking the Concept of Sexuality Education"

Associate Professor Louisa AllenWednesday, 17 Sept 4.00pm-5.00pm
Associate Professor Louisa Allen from the University of Auckland
What should be the content of sexuality education has been a longstanding social and educational debate. This discussion has generally centred on whether particular topics are age appropriate, teacher comfort and competency in delivering them and if issues will cause controversy/offense to some students and families. This presentation shifts focus away from the selection of knowledge within the official curriculum, to examine sexuality education in a more expansive sense. It draws attention to the ways in which meanings about sexuality are learned beyond the official curriculum and the importance of these spaces in terms of young people’s sexual development. To improve sexuality education, it is suggested that more attention be paid to these unofficial means of learning, and the way they establish the sexual cultures of schooling. Read more
